Few of the pics I got yesterday of the dances that I managed to watch.
| In the air! The local folk dance of Yakshagana (literally meaning stories of semi-divine beings) involves colorful costumes and stories from Hindu mythology!|
|One of the dance groups performing a group dance at the Utsav 2011 event at KMC Greens, Manipal .|
|A Kathak performance by an all girl group from the Manipal University institution.|
Utsav what? I love this one. She lost her balance and held on to her Dad’s head to stay upright!
|On top of the world! What better place to view the competitions than from on top of your Dad’s cranium?|
|Wonderful colors, truly invoke the spirit of Utsav 2011.|
|A group in Silver and black.. dazzling the stage|
|The rays of the sun or Divine providence?|
|Another dance at the competition|
