Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Approximately 500 people will attend a public performance by iconic Bharatanatyam dancer/choreographer Smt. Alarmel Valli (of Chennai, India). Through the public performance and associated community engagement activities, targeted audiences in the Twin Cities--Indian-Americans, yoga teachers and practitioners, and general audiences--will develop a deeper understanding of Bharatanatyam and yoga, the kinships between them, and the capacity of culturally rooted practices to be relevant and contemporary. We will collect feedback from attendees via comment cards, social media, and conversation with attendees.
