Navarathiri Arts Festival 2012 (KLNAF)
Navarathiri Festival is a 9 days celebration dedicated to the worship of Goddess Shakti.
Special credit to the Malay dancer above who did a splendid performance of the Indian dance.
Many online resources would have elaborate description of this festival (a.k.a Navatri). Central Market is promoting the cultural dance in collaboration with Asthana Arts Kuala Lumpur, and 10 Indian classical dancing schools.
Many Hindu temples are celebrating the 9 forms of Goddess Shakti over 10 days (9 nights).
Some temples organize dancing performance inside the temple too.
I am glad that admission for the event is free, thus many visitors could be benefited to view the Indian classical and contemporary dance performances. One suggestion to the management of Central Market is to improve the lightning condition and backdrop of the performance stage.
The performance will end on 24 Oct. If you like cultural show, do drop by Central Market in the evening and give the performers clapping hands.
Do pay attention to their detailed expressions, movements and also the accessories. Very enchanting performances.
Thank you for the gurus and students for giving everyone a splendid showcase of the Indian dances.
