Guru Sanchita Bhattacharya, world-renowned Odissi danseuse, graces the Ballroom at the Moose Exchange in a performance Sunday, October 2, 7 pm. Odissi, one of the most ancient classical dance dialects of India, offers unique grace and sculptural qualities in its range of motions and emotions. Sanchita, whose dance has been described as “perfection” by the New York Times, welcomes all people interested in learning the basics of Odissi to a morning workshop, also in the Ballroom, 10 am to noon. Workshop fee is $50 per person. Admission to the evening performance is $15 adults, $10 students.
You know and appreciate what the Moose Exchange does, and together there is much more that we can do. You can help through our special campaign, “Give 10, Tell Ten”. We need each one of you to give $10 and then tell ten other people about the Exchange and our campaign. On our website, www.MooseExchange.org, the PayPal button lets you donate directly. Think of what a few 10s and then 100s and then 1000s of people can do! THANKS.
