Over 700 were in attendance at the thematic dance production staged by non-profit Nadanta the evening of Sunday, July 28. Immortal Love, Amar Prem was performed on the renowned stage of the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center in Dearborn.
“I’ve enjoyed performing for Nadanta for 24 years and I keep coming back whenever I get a chance,” said Poonam Desai.
Mayur Patel added, “It was an incredibly fun and moving experience to perform with Nadanta. All of the hard work and serious dedication from the volunteers and family members made this event possible”.
Four love stories were performed against impressive backdrops with colorful costumes that made the show come to life. The artists received a standing ovation.
The production of 59 performers, ages 5 and up, was choreographed by Chaula Thacker, Nadanta’s artistic director.
“Love is great in every way but it has its own mold. All 4 love stories had great value for me but it was unique lesson of each that we wanted to show the audience,” she said.
Thacker is an internationally recognized choreographer and long-time Michigan resident who has performed on many stages all over the world.
