The Nritya School of Indian Dance and Music will perform on Friday, July 29, from 11:30-1:30 in Ilus Davis Park at 11th and Oak  as part of the Art in the Park project.

Dance is the universal language of the world. Dance is a way of expression, an identity. As with most traditions, dance is different around the world, in every country that you travel to. Certain genres can identify a particular destination, a way of life. As with music, it is highly emotive.

Hema Sharma is the artistic director of Nritya, founded in 1988. Nritya is a versatile company of dancers who work primarily in the South Indian Classical dance style called Bharatha Natyam, and folk dances. Nritya produces dynamic and captivating programs that appeal to all ages.
