Jhankaar - Rhythms of India by IDEA: Indian Dance Educators Association

IDEA is a community of dance professionals from all styles of Indian dance based in the community, serving the community, and enhancing the community. Through its programs, it brings a greater awareness of the unique artistic gifts brought to America’s great cultural tapestry by dancers from India. 

2019 is IDEA’s Silver year, 25 years of nurturing the roots of Indian classical dances in the DC metro area. The first performance to commemorate the beginning of the celebrations is Jhankaar - Rhythms of India at Wolf Trap. The program explores the juxtaposition of rhythms and melodies of Indian classical music and classical dance styles of India. Apart from showcasing the rhythmic nuances of each dance form, there will be a friendly competition or "Jugalbandi" of one style versus other. This vibrant production celebrates the joy of "nritta" or pure dance.
