Naari Shakti: Naach Annual Recital features 75 dancers

Atlanta, GA, May 30, 2023: Naach Dance Academy held its inaugural Annual Dance Recital this month, featuring over 75 dancers of all ages and backgrounds.

Held at Simpson Middle School in Marietta to a theater full of over 300 people, the recital’s theme was “Naari Shakti,” a celebration of women – the unsung heroes of society!

Before any dancer’s feet touched the stage, Naach Dance Academy honored some of the most outstanding South Asian women leaders in Atlanta, including Georgia Senator Nabilah Islam, Fulton County Judge Cassandra Kirk, Judge Neera Behl and a few other extraordinary women who have directly or indirectly impacted all our lives and are pillars of our community here in Atlanta and within their respective fields. It was truly a privilege to have them in attendance!

And then it was time for the spectacular dances – each one specially designed to highlight the many roles women play in their lives: a daughter, a mother, a friend, a leader, amongst so many others, stole everyone’s hearts! A beautiful combination of bollywood and kathak left everyone in awe, while a heartwarming ode to our daughters and the father-daughter bond left tears in everyone’s eyes! 

The recital concluded with a group celebration through dance, where the audience was invited to join the dancers to everyone’s favorite songs “Desi Girl” and “Kala Chashma”. It left everyone dancing and wanting for more!

Sareena Nagpal, the vision behind the recital, shared, “This is the fruit of every participant’s hard work, not just mine. And this is just the beginning of a tradition that will continue to grow bigger and better each year!”

The show was a huge success, even bigger and more magnificent than anyone could have imagined. Naach’s Advanced Kathak and Bollywood classes have already been asked to perform their fusion pieces at three other events this year, not even a month since the recital. So if you missed the epic show, don’t worry – you might see the showstoppers soon!
