How was your experience?
Overall I liked it. I went to the event with my 9 year-old. Wanted to give her some exposure to the beautiful Indian dance and music. If you expect a traditional Indian performance, than for the most part this is not an event for you. This was a mix of Bollywood with modern pop culture. The three lead dancers where Indians, the rest of the group were not. This, for me, took away from the performance. However, all were very good quality dancers, and performed well. Pros: Ford has a great outdoor atmosphere for any performance. The music (traditional Indian music) was beautiful, I wish they were selling CDs. Good for older kids, since some of the characters were from the stories they can recognize (Rapunzel, Cinderella, Snowhite etc.), all described through dance. I did not express my opinion to my daughter, to give her a chance to form her own, and she loved it. Cons: Having only 3 Indian dancers did not give me a feel of the true Bollywood I know, and expected. Did not expect a dance to be performed to a Lady Gaga song. That's pretty much it. More good, than not so good. Keep your mind open, and you will enjoy this performance.
