Chennai-based Sri Parthasarathy Swami Sabha's ‘Bharat Nritya Utsav’ dance festival which follows from the December Season ends now.
The sabha says it provides the stage for young dancers; though the audience is often made of dancer's family and well-wishers and rasikas who stray in.
The finale of this sabha's 117th year fest, which was spread over 60 days will be on 19th March, 6.30 pm onwards at Narada Gana Sabha, Chennai
On the valedictory day, certificates and cash awards will be presented to 25 artistes who performed best. Dr. Jaya Arunachalam, social worker and president, Working Women's Forum (India), presides.
After the formal event, dancer-guru Rajeswari Sainath and her dancers will present a dance ballet 'Lalitha Sahasranamam' ; the concept is by Sama Vedam Shanmukha Sarma, music by Rajkumar Bharathi and rhythms by vidwan Kaaraikkudi Mani.
