Dr Swati Raut, artistic director of Swati Dance Company, said: “Our evening celebrated the magnificent splendour of classical Indian dance to mark International Dance Day. Swati Dance Company has been providing training to young dancers for a number of years. We mentor young dancers to become teachers and performers of the future through Swati Youth Dance, which was the first classical Indian dance company to be selected to perform at U-Dance England. We use the vocabulary of Bharatanatyam (classical Indian dance form) in our choreography and we have been successful in a grant from The Arts Council England to work on Half of Me, based on a play written by Satinder Kaur Chohan.”
