Anamika-Navatman Project Navaratri Celebrations

Queens, New Jersey, Long Island, upstate New York - all of these areas have vibrant and festive Navaratri and Diwali celebrations. Why not Manhattan?

Enter Anamika-Navatman: with an eye on creating and fostering community and the South Asian arts, providing artists and patrons with phenomenal experiences, and with our kick off celebrations due for the fall, we have the ingredients for the perfect storm.

The Indian holiday season is starting up, and everyone is itching to dance the night away in festive conviviality. The excitement is inescapable, as whispers of where one will be headed and exactly how to do the 12-step raas are discussed. So, with a tip of its hat to the vibrant and joyous folk dances of India, Navatman will be providing a venue to do just that. Never danced to Indian music before? No problem - there will be dancers galore waiting to teach you the popular steps of folk dance, and the night will continue on with traditional folk music mixed with the newest smash hits of Bollywood. So, dust off those dandiyas and come join the celebration!
