Come dancing?

Menaka Bora on World Museum Liverpool walkway

Menaka in action

I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview of a Sattirya dance performance this morning at World Museum Liverpool. Award-winning classical dance star Menaka Bora was checking out the space and practicing a couple of moves in preparation for her performance at the Treasure House Theatre on Saturday 20 October.

Dressed in fabulous traditional costume Menaka gave us a flavour of the Dashavatara which tells the story of the Hindu god Vishnu. If you’re a budding dancer and fancy having a go at this ancient Indian dance technique Menaka will be running a workshop at 3.30pm on the 20th. Give it a try – if John Barnes can master ballroom dancing there’s hope for us all!
