Traditions of India dance program to be held in 2 library branches

TOMSRIVER –   Indian dance, born in Hindu temples more than 2,000 years ago, is movement, mime, and music in equal measures. 

In a special program, choreographer and performer Ramya Ramnarayan, along with her dancers, will present “Traditions of India” Wednesday Oct. 10 at the Ocean County Library’s Barnegat branch and its Upper Shores branch in Lavallette.

Adorned in beautiful costumes, jewelry, and makeup replicating a temple structure, the dancers will evoke the emotions and complex rhythmic patterns of Indian dance that bring a mystical view of the universe to life.

“Traditions of India” will begin at 4 p.m. at the Barnegat branch (112 Burr St.)  and 7:30 p.m. at the Upper Shores (112 Jersey City Av., Lavallette.)

This program is made possible through an OceanFirst Foundation Arts and Cultural Grant and the Ocean County Library Foundation.

This program is free and open to the public.  Registration is required.  For more information or to register go to the Web site or call (732) 349-6200 or (609) 971-0514.
