Classical Indian Dance
Neha Parikh is originally from Bombay, India and currently lives in Nashua, New Hampshire. Neha is an accomplished Indian classical dancer, specializing in two styles-- Bharatanatyam and Mohini Attam. The movements of classical Indian dance are highly stylized. Hand, feet, and facial gestures are timed precisely to the complexities of classical Indian music. Many dances are based on ancient mythology. The costumes and personal adornments, often lavish in color and texture, are an important part of the tradition. Neha began learning to dance in Bombay when she was six years old and studied with many noted master dancers. She has a Masters Degree of Fine Arts in Classical Indian Dance and Philosophy from Nalanda University. Since moving to Nashua, she has become active in the Indian Association of New Hampshire. She started teaching over four years ago and has complete two Arangetrams (formal debut performances of her students.) She is available to perform as a solo dancer or with a group of her students.
