Recital to help charity Saturday

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

By going to the upcoming Family YMCA Kathak and Bharatanatyam dance recital, the audience will be able to do more than see types of Indian dance; they will have the chance to make a difference in another country across the world.

This is the fourth year the dance recital has been held and instructor Alina Deschpande said every year the proceeds go to a charity in India. This year, the concert will benefit Rotoaract Club. The civic organization has initiated a program that proposes to set up scientific labs for rural children. Five labs have already been set up, but the organization is planning to do more.

Deschpande said the Rotoaract Club was selected because Los Alamos is a scientific community and it seemed appropriate for the town to support enhancing the sciences for students.

In addition to a new charity, the recital has new venue. Rather than performing at Barranca Elementary School, the show will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday at Duane Smith Auditorium.

Admission is free but donations will be accepted. Last year, the show raised $1,500 but Deschpande hopes to raises more this year because of the larger venue.

It will not just be YMCA dancers taking stage, Melissa Balice and her students and Dance Arts Los Alamos (DALA) dancers are planning to take the stage.
