Shivaratri Celebration

Dancers from the Shakti School of Bharata Natyam, under the direction of  Viji Prakash, made their annual dance offering on the occasion of Shivaratri, the holy Hindu festival. Images below are from Feb 21 & 22, 2020, at temples throughout the Southland.


There are so many ways to share our love for Bharata Natyam. This past weekend Shakti dancer – Janani shared her joy for the art form at the Krishna Temple in SoCal #mahashivaratri2020
