Laasya 2016

There’s no bigger rush for me than to visualize something and then see it come to life.

Laasya is a traveling dance competition that provides a space for collegiate Indian classical dance teams to showcase their choreographed stories. In 2015, Ilakya Palanisamy and I were given the opportunity to bring this show to Berkeley, and Laasya 2016 was a labor of our love and commitment. As a Co-Director, I assembled a Laasya Board, managed the budget and logistics, and kept the team on track. Nine months of planning and preparation culminated in an exciting weekend of dance, music, and philanthropy. I’m excited to see Berkeley dancers host Laasya once again in 2021.
