Enjoy South Asian dance and culture at Cambridge Dance Festival this July

Award-winning Sanskruti Dance brings a dance festival for everyone to Cambridge this July, with dance workshops and performances drawing from a wide range of South Asian dance traditions. The festival will be held on Sunday 7th July at Cambridge Junction, with dance workshops at 10am, 11.30am and 12.30pm, followed by an evening performance starting at 6pm.

The morning dance workshops are a great opportunity for people to unleash their creativity through rhythm and movement, exploring Bollywood and Manipuri dance styles. Run by the UK’s leading South Asian dance artists, these sessions are suitable for different ages and abilities, so the whole family can take part.

In the evening, the whole family can enjoy stunning performances from some of the best South Asian dancers, as well as local performers from Sanskruti Cambridge dance school. The showcase will include:

  • Suhani Dhanki Mody, a performer, teacher and choreographer and Indian TV and film actress, who will perform Bharatanatyam dance, the oldest classical dance tradition in India
  • Noel Datta, a dance movement psychotherapist and performer who will perform Manipuri, one of the major Indian classical dance forms from Manipur
  • the ever-popular and increasingly familiar dance style from Bollywood, courtesy of London-based dance company Aparajita Burjwal Dance.

Krishna Zivraj-Nail, Sanskruti Dance’s Artistic Director, said, “Cambridge does not have a festival focussed on dance that brings families together allowing them to explore their own creativity with rhythms and movement. At Sanskruti, we believe that dance is for everyone, and can be made accessible, and are always looking for ways to reach out to new people,

including the elderly along with children and their families. We hope this one-day dance festival will be an opportunity for everyone to experience the benefits of dance and introduce more people to Indian dance and culture.”
