June 16, 2005
It was amazing for residents of Union County to experience the culture of India through a mesmerizing show by Shubanjali School of Performing Arts, a premier dance institution in NJ, through an extravagant dance production titled "Splash the Wonder," at the Terrill Middle School Auditorium in Scotch Plains, NJ on June 4th 2005, made possible in part by an educational HEART Grant from the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
featured dance exhibits including educational booths describing Indian
dance styles and a spectacular plethora of themes featuring both the classical
and the folk traditions of India. Over 70 students of Shubanjali, sent
the audience into raptures with perfectly coordinated movements and richly
designed costumes presenting a variety of themes including dance numbers
on Lord Ganesha, the Harvest Dance, the Gypsy folklore of India, patriotic
themes, dances on Krishna, Devi and the Saint Thyagaraja classic "Nagumomu,"
presented in groups by the well trained students of Shubanjali.
Suba Ramesh Parmar, founder and artistic director of Shubanjali, presented a beautifully choreographed solo dramatic piece "Brindavanadolu," illustrating the 'Draupadi Vastraharan' and 'Gitopadesam' episodes from the Mahabharatha.
was well attended by some of the county’s stalwarts including the Deputy
Mayor of Scotch Plains who praised Parmar for her tremendous contribution
to the Arts in Union County.
