South Asian Dance symposium

The British Arts Festivals Association conference is taking place at Phoenix Square in Leicester this week. And last week, Leicester was host to the national symposium for South Asian Dance, organised by the Centre for Indian Classical Dance. CICD was set up in Leicester in 1981 by Nilima Devi and has a huge legacy of great dancers including the upcoming Aakash Odedra who is currently having a piece created for him by Akram Khan. Great debate and dance was had at the symposium and this is Amina Khayyam doing the welcome dance. She is photographed by Kajal Patel, the Leicester-based photographer who had a bursary from Creative Leicestershire a couple of years ago. Do look at her work at
