Neera -- the expressive dancer

One of the leading suburban cultural organisations, the 'Rasika Ranjani Sabha' presented a festival of dance and music at their hall in Ghatkopar. One of the programs was presented in the Bharatanatyam style by the disciples of accomplished Bharatanatyam exponent Guru Sushama Bane. The performance revealed the enthusiasm and devotion of the young dancers.

The 'Rasika Ranjani Sabha' has been regularly organising programs to promote and propagate Indian classical dance and music by providing a platform to young, deserving and established performers. The program commenced with the traditional invocation, followed with the 'Saraswati Alarippu' that introduced the audience to the basic movements and technique of Bharatanatyam. The 'Vasanta Jatiswaram' formed a fine synthesis of both music and melody, performed by Neera Deepak Bane, Anushka Iyer, Anoushka Pradeepan and Shaijal Goankar, students of Guru Sushama Bane, who heads the Om Shanti Nriyalaya Evam Sanshodhan Kendra in Andheri.

Bhajan 'Aatma Niwasi Ram' featured the glory and magnificence of Lord Rama and the Marathi number 'Keshava Madhava' incorporated Lord Krishna and the short ballet 'Mathura Nagrilo' incorporated the inter-relationship of Radha, Krishna and the Gopis in Mathura. While the dancers were quite pleasing, Neera was quite expressive, winning the applause of the audience.

The dancers concluded with the intricate 'Hindolam Thillana' that exposed stylised movements to perfect rhythm, danced with involvement. The dancers received fine orchestral support from Guru Sushama and the well-knit orchestra. Young dancers definitely deserves encouragement.
