Founded in 1992 and acclaimed as one of the Indian Diaspora’s leading dance ensembles, Ragamala Dance Company seamlessly carries the South Indian classical dance into the 21st century. Informed by the echoing past and the fleeting present, co-artistic directors Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy’s evocative choreography is a must see.

Set to a video-saturated backdrop and accompanied by musicians playing on traditional Indian instruments, the artists’ spectacular footwork, hand gestures and facial expressions “provide some of the most transcendent experiences that dance has to offer” (The New York Times).
