Thandavam is a premier team of Indian classical dancers at VCU, each of which has trained in their respective style for 10-15 years. At TEDxVCU 2016, Thandavam performed two dances. The first of which juxtaposes traditional Indian dance steps with a combination of modern classical, hip-hop, and Bollywood music. The second performance interpreted a student’s modern struggle with depression through dance, telling a story of challenge, recovery, and the power of family and friends to instill hope when we need it most.

Enormous thanks to #ThandavamAtVCU for such a moving and beautiful performance.
