Style and substance!
October 24, 2006
Aptly titled Marga-Desi, it took the audience through a substance filled recital with its artistic and rhythmic content, recalling the traditional – the Marga focus. Bala, a compelling artist, truly inspired the audience with both Nrita and Abhinaya items with intrinsic spiritual value.
In Pujyashree Swami Dayananda's words, "In today's performance I saw something profound! It was a delightful evening; we are wiser having attended the performance. Bala's students gave us a treat. We saw the entire gamut of vyayamas, steps and units of Karanas, which are temple sculptures and the items that followed them. Surely, they have been trained very well in a Gurukulam pattern under Bala's tutelage."
He added, "Bala's guru Padma Subrahmanyam is a very dedicated person and Bala has imbibed from her guru, everything that is profound and beautiful"!
