Seating starts at 3:30pm
Third Eye Dancers proudly present Bharathakala Natya Academy's 'Once Upon A Time – Beauty And The Beast' a thematic Naatya presentation choreographed by Smt. Subathra Sudarshan at the Gwinnett Center on Sunday October 25th, 2015. This event will be a charity fundraiser for MindLeaps
MindLeaps is concentrated on access to education for some of the world’s poorest children – those living on the street without any food, clothing, medical care or schooling. MindLeaps has developed an innovative three-part model that combines dance, IT training, and school sponsorship. This model helps street children transition and integrate into their local communities through behavioral transformation and skill development (www.mindleaps.org).
Third Eye Dancers is a Georgia not for profit organization (IRS 501 c 3) with the goal of increasing awareness about social issues affecting children, including education, environmental, abuse and those related to health. The organization strongly believes that communicating social issues through dance not only enhances reception but also entices children and young adults to get involved in the remediation of such pressing issues. Third Eye Dancers has contributed to various causes over the years including Rising Star Outreach (children affected by Leprosy), Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Akshaya Trust (CNN Hero Narayanan Krishnan), Tamilnadu Kidney Research Foundation and for Bhutanese Refugees Children Education in Atlanta.
Bharathakala Natya Academy, founded by Smt Subathra Sudarshan, is premier Bharatanatyam academy (kalakshetra style) in Atlanta. Bharathakala engages students in imaginative dances while learning about the history of Bharatnatyam as well as the culture following the Kalakshetra style
