The Cork Indian Dance Troupe will host an evening of performances for Cork Penny Dinners
An Indian dance troupe is hosting a night of magical performances and fundraising in Cork City, with proceeds going to Cork Penny Dinners.
Indian dance troupe Aatma, who you may remember from their amazing St. Patrick’s Day performances and a surprise proposal on St. Patrick’s Street, will put on a show and be joined by other dance groups from Cork for the fundraising evening.
There will also be performances by dance theater company Making Moves, UCC Staff Dance Company and Rhythmic feet tap dancers, as well as an Irish dancing ensemble.
A GoFundMe page was set up ahead of the event with donations earmarked for Cork Penny Dinners, which voluntarily provides thousands of freshly prepared meals each week to those in need.
Over an hour of dancing and with traditional Indian snacks served, Aatma said they “hope everyone will join our efforts to raise funds for Cork Penny Dinners”.
Troupe founder and leader of the UCC Indian Alumni Community, Dr Lekha Menon Margassery, said: “We hope to contribute to the Cork community that has nurtured our passion by providing us with an audience and a stage. on which to play.
“We hope everyone will join our efforts to raise funds for Cork Penny Dinners.”
The theme of the show is Navarasa: 9 Human Emotions and will take place July 9 at UCC’s Aula Maxima venue with tickets available online.
