Abhinaya Dance Company presents their special spring concert selection -- Sadhika -- a celebration of Artistic Director Mythili Kumar's 50 years (and then some) spent dedicated to dance. Since 1962, Kumar has been learning, performing and teaching Bharatanatyam, an ancient style of Indian classical dance. Performing since she was 11 years old, and only recently returned from a performing tour of temples and cities of India, this special presentation will feature many of her signature, critically acclaimed choreographic works. Kumar's solo performance will be preceded by a special work from other Abhinaya Company dancers. Learn More

Dennis Nahat’s Cannonade is pure rapid-fire energy, as fast as the mortarfire that inspired its title. This classical ballet is danced to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in D minor.
Choreographer Michael Smuin’s Shinju is a Japanese Romeo and Juliet style tragedy danced to a custom-composed score by renowned Japanese-American composer Paul Chihara with brilliantly creative costumes by Willa Kim…the Dream Team that brought you The Tempest
Note: Shinju contains partial nudity.
Nahat’s signature piece, Quicksilver, is choreographed to Felix Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in G minor, Opus 25. This youthful, joyous work with its driving force delivers a powerhouse of a finale.
