The City of San Leandro invites the public to an evening of classical Indian dance with the Shri Krupa Dance Company, in celebration of Indo American Heritage.
The performance will take place on Thursday, Aug. 13 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Main Library, 300 Estudillo Ave. in downtown San Leandro.
“San Leandro is one of the most diverse cities in California, and our diversity is an integral part of what makes it such a special community,” said Mayor Pauline Russo Cutter.
The Shri Krupa Dance Company (SKDC) is the oldest Indian classical dance school in the San Francisco Bay Area and was founded by the world-renowned Bharatanatyam teacher, dancer and choreographer Guru Vishal Ramani.
The dance company is a thriving center of excellence for Bharatanatyam learning, where the dance is taught within the strict confines of the style set by the Thanjavur tradition.
The school has produced many of the Bay Area’s finest practitioners and exponents of this ancient art form. Under Guru Vishal’s leadership, Shri Krupa is the first School in the Bay Area to present full-length classical Indian dance ballets with live music to critical acclaim.
Admission is free. For information, please call the Information Desk at (510) 577-3971.
