“On behalf of the Asian Dance and Music Program, I want to thank you for an evening of glorious dance. Your wonderful movements that were sometimes caressingly beautiful and other times arrestingly passionate enhanced the rapture and beauty of Rumi’s poetry…. your ingenious style of storytelling, from the many comments I heard that evening enchanted the audience at the concert. In all, it was a very inventive performance in linking poetry, music and dance from the East and West traditions.” —Ranjanaa Devi, Director, The Fine Arts Center, University of Mass. Amherst
