An upcoming free concert this Friday!

INDIA JAZZ SUITES (also called Fastest Feet in Rhythm), featuring Pandit Chitresh Das and Jason Samuels Smith, is an explosive collaboration between one of India’s foremost Kathak masters and one of the world’s fastest, Emmy-award winning tap dancers. The result is high entertainment which crosses all boundaries of age, race and culture — a blast of incredible speed and power, grace and beauty, epic storytelling and the pure joy of dance.

As previewed in class last week, India Jazz Progressions will be performing their unique blend of Kathak (classical Indian dance) and tap dance in concert at Grand Performances, downtown LA. It is a free event, but parking downtown is definitely NOT free. However, there is parking very close to the event, and the last time I was in the area I paid $10 to park for the evening. The concert is outside, and since it is free, arriving early for a seat is HIGHLY recommended. Bringing food is also a good thing, and there are several places to buy food in the area as well, at varying price points, of course. The website for Grand Performances has all of the information in regards to directions, parking and the like. I realize the distance will be a factor, but if you can manage to get yourself (and maybe some of your friends) to carpool, you will experience a wonderful evening of dance! For those who need to stay closer to home, there are upcoming events in the Inland Empire as well!

  1. I was waiting for you to post something newer, but since we are at the last of October, I’d like to say that I have done my field report but I’d love to go to any dance concert for some extra credit points. so if anything else than this one is open, I am ready 😀

  2. I have been waiting for something newer as well, I don’t want to miss out on extra credit. So ill just post something now. I am also willing to do any other extra credit available. I am even willing to do car pool and drive.

  3. Still waiting for a new post, but its okay . I want to say that I am excited for the concert we are seing on Wednesday in Rcc theater. Hope I can get a good observation about it and a good grade.

    • Considering we’ll still get credit, here’s my comment! I wish there had been a newer post to comment on though. But I agree! That’d be interesting to see that. However, seeing her choreo in the Kinetic Conversations concert was just as exciting and entertaining – I loved it!
