Lasya School of Dance set to enthrall New England with ‘RUDRAM’

Springtime is upon us. After a long hard year, music and dance enthusiasts in New England are eagerly looking forward to the upcoming cultural events of the year. Yet again, Lasya School of Dance, under the guidance of Guru Sapna Krishnan is promising to bring to stage a dance drama titled ‘Rudram’, based on the legendary stories of Lord Siva from the sacred text of Shiva Purana. The dance ballet is set to kick off on June 26th to a fully packed audience at the Fogelberg Performing Arts Center of Burlington high school in Massachusetts. A group of 130 vibrant dancers are gearing up to perform in Rudram, a show that is expected to be a grand spectacle of mellifluous music, riveting drama, synchronized leaps, jumps and rhythmic footwork.

It is to be highlighted that the school debuted its first dance ballet production ‘Maya Madhavam’ in the year 2004. The visuals, lights, music, dance and drama offered by ‘Maya Madhavam’ was nothing short of a fully immersive opera experience. The show managed to transform the space and transport the spellbound audience from Mathura to Vrindavan to Dwarka, traversing through the charming stories of the eternal Lord Krishna. Although 8 years ago, the audience vociferously applauding at the end of every scene made the show a truly memorable experience for those who witnessed it.

Guru Sapna Krishnan, student of Late Sri Natanam Sivapalan Master, is an accomplished dancer and a devoted guru. Her unique flair for choreography brings a wave of freshness and distinguishes her from her contemporaries. Her teaching style is different and students who learn dance from her not just learn the classical art form of Bharatanatyam, but also the unique stories of Indian heritage that are passed along over several generations. By encouraging her students to participate and perform in dance events, cultural programs and charity events, she strives to instigate a feeling of achievement at every stage of learning, be it a tiniest tot, seasoned performer or a late blooming adult. This time, SEWA USA and Malabar Rehabilitation for Handicapped, based out of Payyanur in Kerala will be the beneficiaries of proceeds from the dance school’s charity show.

It is often said that creativity is an inexplicable form of divine inspiration. ‘Rudram’, a dance theater based on the mystic Lord Shiva promises to stand testimony to this statement. Eagerly looking forward to witnessing this grand spectacle!
