A heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to a spectacular month celebrating Bollywood at the @honolulumuseum, and in particular to our second annual showcase, Essence: A Celebration of Women. It was a smashing success with a nearly sold out audience. We featured a diverse range of dancers and performances (as you can see from the program) including @shakti.dance.movement, @kennyendotaiko, @madame.x.hawaii , @emmapealcbc , @lunavelour ladies from @cherryblossomcabaret , Dave Gupta, UH manoa dance students, and of course principal dancers @sumohajmin @sai.bhatawadekar and @nadamcc. So many people worked tirelessly behind the scenes including our incredible stage manager Joe, stage hands @arora_ananya, Amit and Jacquisha, and our fabulous MC @prajuchaubal. This gorgeous program was designed by @cheddacheesey with awesome photography by @ericrosso. It’s been a beautiful partnership with the @honolulumuseum and all the wonderful folks who make things happen there including Sarah Fang, Taylour Chang, Minette Ferrer, and so many others - we’re looking forward to many more years of spreading the joy of Bollywood dance throughout Hawai‘i! #bollywoodhawaii#bollywoodfilmfestival#dorisduketheatre#essence#aajanachlehawaii#showprogram#mahalos#bollywooddance#bollywooddancehawaii

Luna Velour, Emma Peal and Madame X join in on the celebration! #repost @emmapealcbc (@get_repost) ・・・ RepostBy @aajanachlehawaii: "One special woman we love to celebrate is the ever graceful @lunavelour - she never stops dancing, whether it’s Swing, Salsa, Zouk, or especially Burlesque. She brings all this talent and experience to @aajanachlehawaii and has choreographed some of our sexiest and most delightful fusion pieces and has pioneered Bollywood Burlesque in Hawaii! She will be premiering a brand new Bollywood Swing piece in our show at the @honolulumuseum - don’t miss it! #bollywoodhawaii#bollywoodfusion#essence#celebratingwomen#bollywoodfilmfestival#aajanachlehawaii#bollywoodburlesque#girlsliketoswing#hawaiievents#dorisduketheatre" (via #instarepost @EasyRepost)
