Overture Center’s Kids in the Rotunda is a series of free artistic programs designed for children and families which runs from the last weekend in September through April. This popular performing arts series on the Rotunda Stage offers a relaxed, kid-friendly environment in which to enjoy a diverse lineup of local and regional musicians, storytellers, jugglers, theater troupes, magicians and dancers. The programs run every Saturday at 9:30 am, 11 am and 1 pm (each performance lasts around 45 minutes). The 1 pm performances are sign language interpreted.
This week’s performers are Meenakshi Ganesan & Kalaanjali School of Dance (Classical Indian dance)
For nearly 25 years, the Kalaanjali School of Dance has shared the drama of traditional Bharatanatyam-style dancing of southern India with southern Wisconsin. Vividly experience breathtaking stories of the East through the graceful bodies, percussive feet, vibrant costumes and dynamic expressions of the Kalaanjali dancers. Led by Meenakshi Ganesan, dancers of all ages will capture your spirit with the beauty, elegance and magnificence of classical Indian dance.
