Dandia, 2009

Dandia, constructed for use in our young audience’s program, is based on the Indian folk dance of the same name. This upbeat work utilizes percussion through wooden sticks throughout and concludes with audience participation at the end. Artistic Director Valerie Green learned this dance in India during a teaching residency in 2009.
