Birch Grove welcomes artist in residence for a lesson in Indian dance

Birch Grove welcomes artist in residence for a lesson in Indian dance

Birch Grove School for the Arts students had a shake-up to their typical physical education programming Jan. 29-31, when all third and fourth grade students got a lesson in Indian dance from an artist in residence, Sivanuja Balaji. 

The Ordway Performing Arts Center funded the opportunity for the students to learn from Balaji, the founder of a performing arts organization that promotes multi-disciplinary theatrical art. Balaji has been teaching, performing, choreographing and promoting art for nearly 30 years.
