Halloween Dance Special Announcement

Even More Reasons to Buy Tickets for the

Halloween Boogie Monster Dance

You probably thought we were already outdoing ourselves by not just hosting a Hip-Hop Dance with every popular DJ in the city and featuring the only dance in town with a Necromorph Exhibit—but we solemnly swore an oath to “leave no member behind” on Halloween so we also want to announce that Mark Mitchell will MC and manage the Costume Contest (where there will be cash and other prizes) and if that isn’t enough: Archana Kumar will be giving a special performance in the discipline of Kathak Dance.

Archana formed the Manasarovar Kathak School in Seattle in 2003 and teaches at her own studio and gives classes and lecture demos at several colleges and schools.

To Archana, dance is “a dynamic expression” of our “conscious, subconscious, and unconscious mind.” The name “Kathak” literally means “story” and was started in Northern India as an art form for entertaining the public combining Sanskrit Poetic Literature and this special dance style.

Kathak Dance is characterized by its “unique movement quality.” Archana often blends her Indian classical art with modern dance moves and this creates an “international dance aesthetic infusing different art forms of various ethnic origins.”
