Shiva Tandava

Mansi Vira
Shiva Tandava is a superimposition of Bharatanatyam and Odissi, two of the seven ancient classical Indian dance forms. The dance is enriched with strong, energetic footwork contrasted with graceful, architectural poses that closely resemble the statues found in India’s historic temples. Dancing in the Bharatnatyam style, Mansi personifies Lord Shiva as she dances his Tandava, a vigorous dance that symbolizes the cosmic cycles of creation, preservation, and destruction. Shiva’s movements and expressions are dynamic, powerful,...

Raas Leela

Mansi Vira
This piece is a modernized Garba-Raas, a folk dance originating in Gujarat, India. Garba is traditionally performed in a circle around a lit clay lantern to honor Goddess Durga.

Pyar Ke Taal

The dancer creates ornamental patterns in space and time to two very popular Bollywood songs, following the conventional Kathak structure from slow to fast tempo, ending with a dramatic climax. Although heavily rhythmic, this piece is infused with lyrical melodies, allowing the viewer to vicariously...

Throw your eyes out of focus, see the fire dancing between the two

Amanda Takiguchi
I believe that my dance style cannot be confined to a single category, that it is a fusion of many influences. In using two different versions of the same song, I hope to reveal the spectrum of hip-hop dance, showing that it may not be so different from other dance forms after all. I challenge you to throw your eyes out of focus and see the fire that exists between dance genres.

Then My Life Begins

Gina Marie Borden
This piece explores the relationship of movement to space and time. How does the effect of a movement shift as the dancer slows down or speeds up?

This personal exploration of my movement has shaped my thesis work, allowing me to choreograph as I never have before. Choreographer (and performer): Gina Marie Borden, Director: Mariah Maloney, Composer (and guitarist): Tareq Abuissa,...
