Taal ताल

Taal means rhythm in Hindi. I had the privilege of photographing the recital for Sargam dance school, which is run by the talented and beautiful, Mansi. This recital was a colorful celebration classical Indian, fusion and Bollywood dancing. The harsh stage lighting was a new challenge for me, but being able to be around all that tradition, the colors, and oh, the music. What an experience! When Mansi came out on stage to join the other dancers in the finale, I stood, practically frozen, from her beauty and elegance. I wanted to be her, dancing. I can still hear the music.
