Good episode? Give it some love!

What started as an experiment to carry on a legacy, has turned into a successful dance company, The Leela Dance Collective.  They have provided incredible experiences to audiences all over the world. Their latest work, Son of The Wind,  will be presented soon at one of my favorite venues, The Ford Theaters in Los Angeles on Saturday, September 14th, 2019 at 8:00pm. I had the pleasure of having an in-person conversation recently with the lovely Rina Mehta, co-artistic director, at Soho Dance LA Studio, where Rina teaches. I was so excited to observe her class and learn more about kathak dance, a classical dance form that originates from Northern India. It is engaging, percussive and a joy to watch.
