South Indian Art and Dance

June 26, 2013

The Livermore Public Library will present South Indian Art and Dance on Wednesday, June 26, 2013, at 2:30pm, at the Rincon Library. South Indian Art and Dance is one of many variety performances during the library’s 2013 Summer Reading Program, “Reading is So Delicious!”

Clap & dance along as the Kalaikoil dancers present the culture, language, geography and music of South India through the traditional art form of Baharatanatyam.  The classical dance, much like ballet & the hula, tells a story through a combination of dance, music & drama.  Kalaikoil dancers will show you how to dance a few of the steps and even teach you to say a few Indian words.

This free performance will be held outside, with the audience to be seated on tarps.  Attendees are encouraged to arrive early for best parking and viewing opportunities and to bring appropriate sun gear.  Summer Reading Programs are geared toward children ages 4 and older.
