Bhairavi Dance School presented ‘Dakshina’, an event that displayed Indian classical dance forms like Bharatnatyam and Mohiniattom, on the evening of 8 October at Indian Community Centre, Perth. 

It was the painstaking endeavour of Sindhu Nair and her talented team of Indian-Australian artists who presented an intricate and exquisite performance of Indian classical dance and music marking the 10th anniversary of Bhairavi Dance Classes. The event was appropriately titled ‘Dakshina’ as it was a tribute to the Guru by her students for her care, affection and teachings.

Among the attendees were chief guests Consul General, Perth, Amarjeet Singh Takhi, Member for Jandakot Yaz Mubarakai, Member for Riverton Dr. Jags Krishnan, and Member for Tangney Sam Lim.

Besides the participants, musicians Radhika, Ananthu, Dev, Satheeshan, Suman, Ananya, and Kasthuri enthralled the audience and supported the artists with their musical prowess. On this occasion ISKCON Perth – Sri Sri Gaura Nitai Temple provided the prasadam (food). 

The master of ceremonies Kavita reinforced the nostalgic and classical ambience throughout the show and assisted in connecting the audience with the essence of the performance. Also the International Centre for Choreography team supported the event. Prakash and Sasee supported in ensuring appropriate sound and lights respectively, and Yaso helped in the aspect of music coordination at the event.
