Cumming, Georgia, United States, February 19, 2024. The North GA Indian Dance Fest 2024 will bring Georgians together to celebrate classical Indian dance that transcends time and borders, showcasing tradition, community, and artistry.

Join us at West Forsyth High School (4155 Drew Road, Cumming, GA) for a free journey through the ancient art of Indian dance, made possible by the Soorya Foundation and the Forsyth County Arts Alliance’s commitment to preserving and promoting traditional performing arts.

This year’s festival, which will take place on March 23, 2024, at 3:00 PM, promises to be even more enchanting than the previous one, which captivated audiences with performances by award-winning dance companies and local talent alike. Representative Todd Jones will open the event, signalling the beginning of a memorable day.

The event will feature a stunning array of artists from Georgia, Tampa, FL, and Los Angeles, including the acclaimed Soorya Ensemble, Rudram Dance Company, and local schools like Darshini Natyalaya and Bharata Darshana.
