Champa and Chameli, established at the University of Georgia in 2005, combine the classical art of Bharatnatyam (traditional Indian dance) with folk dance and modern dance genres of hip hop, jazz, ballet, gymnastics and tap. The members choreograph their own original routines to perform at cultural shows and competitions.
The six girls pictured below held tryouts this week to add girls to the group. They performed last year’s competition piece as an example. I think these turned out well, but I want to do more detail shots next week. I’ll meet up with the girls again to add color and costumes, audio about joining the group and (I hope) even some sample music.
