We had the good fortune of spending the day with Ranee Ramaswamy, founder and co-artistic director of the Ragamala Dance Company. She is a Choreographer and Principal Dancer along with her creative partner (and daughter) Aparna Ramaswamy. Their performers merges the rich traditions and deep philosophical roots of their Indian heritage with their hybridic perspective as first generation Indian-Americans.
Just got back from the Washington Convention Center in DC where I produced an Inaugural Ball video for USA TODAY. What amazing performances all around and a great crowd of people. Lots of them were very eager to speak and interview with us. Ran into lots of old friends and co-workers, and had a blast doing it with USA TODAY’s Cindy Clark and Darr Beiser.
