Today, Westwood students pulled together and performed a show titled “Indradhanush”, meaning rainbow, which showcased a variety of Indian dances and music, from classical to Bollywood. The program was very diverse, but all the performers had a lot of experience and had been very well trained in many different art forms, including Odissi, Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi, Flute, Violin, and Carnatic music. The program included something for everyone. There were many classical Indian dances, but the show began with a popular Ganesha semi classical song, Ekadantaya Vakratundaya, sung melodiously by Madhuri Neralla. On the violin, Suhaas Patil played many enjoyable classics, like Rimjim gire Sawan and Chura Liya. All of the girls who performed classical dances were veterans at their craft, and most had completed dance Arangetrams and Rangapraveshams, which are dancer debut performances after they have completed many years of dance. Shruthi Nampoothiri performed Odissi Ardhaneeshwara beautifully, Nikitha Majjigga performed a fast paced Kuchipudi piece that kept that audience engrossed, Navya Neerukonda showcased a graceful Bharatanatyam thillana that told a story of Lord Krishna, and Sruthi Ramaswamy hypnotized the audience with her elegant Saraswati piece. The lead organizer of the show, Pooja Enagala, had recently fractured her foot and was unable to dance, but played her part in the show by emceeing and singing her rendition of “When We Were Young” by Adele. The grand finale was a 10 minute medley of popular old and new bollywood dances performed by all the girls, including songs like Ghoomar, Vachinde, and Dola re.
Those who came and watched the show were taken by the smooth program and incredible performances. Some members of the audience said they would have even paid more than the $10 ticket fee for a show like the one put on today. Those who got to watch the full program enjoyed the variety and novelty of the performances.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
