Classical dancer to perform in Auckland

A popular dancer of Indian origin is due to present a Bharata Natyam dance recital in Auckland next fortnight.

Sajilal Narayanan, currently associated with the Nrtyakala School of Indian Dance in Toronto, Canada, will perform at the Selwyn College auditorium in Kohimarama on Saturday, June 16, 2012 at 5 pm.

Kalaichelvi Uthayakumaran, Director and Principal of the Auckland based ‘Narthana Aalayam,’ which is organising the programme, said that Sajilal is a performer par excellence.

A graduate of the Kalakshetra School in Chennai, he received the title of ‘Yuvakalabharathi,’ from the ‘Bharat Kalachar,’ a Centre that promotes classical arts in 2008.

“The title was conferred on him by the Centre in Chennai for his high level of professionalism in dancing, nattuvangam and choreography,” she said.

Tickets for the show ($15 per person) are now available.
