2015 marks the 30th anniversary of the Rangoli Foundation for Art & Culture. In celebration of this landmark occasion, join Rangoli Dance Company for its acclaimed work SACRED GEOMETRY.
Sacred Geometry uses geometric figures and shapes to describe the beauty of creation, and how absolute unity exhibits multiplicity and diversity.
