The Tagore Society of New York

My daughter began taking Kathak Dance classes a few months ago to explore other techniques and this led her to the opportunity, as her group was invited to perform at the Indian Consulate in New York.

May 7th, 2011 celebrated the 150th Birth Anniversay of Rabindranath Tagore .. It was truly an honor to be present at this event. The influence of his words and melodies through time is beyond words.

They did a great job at conveying the messages in English for those of us not understanding the language. We were entertained by dances and songs (and a few speeches O_o)…  The costumes were as elaborate as I had expected.

My daughter’s group danced to a beautiful folk song.. Lively and the ended the program, so after what seemed like a looong night, we ended on a fun note.
