Danced at Jacksonville Rathayatra. Last time I danced here was in 2009 with Gangi and Kumari. 3 years ago. wow.
So I cant help but reflect on where I was then, where I am now, and where I want to go. But I don’t feel fully open to talk about my thoughts regarding this.
This time Vish and I did two dances collaboratively. And I was also really grateful to my teacher Swathi Mahalakshmi for her suggestion that I dance our new Kuchipudi dance. I love doing dances like this because it reminds me that I can actually dance!
I was waiting to get some better footage, but this is what Narayana Johnson captured using my iPhone:
My favorite moment might just be when the bicycle goes by!
Here is a HD collage of our performance that day:
