Smitalay Workshops

Summer Workshop 2004

Smitalay's summer workshop ended with an informal function on the 23rd of May,  where all the participants performed the dance item they learnt in the workshop. Some students even sang, and even played the pakhawaj. Ratikant Mohapatra (son of the legendary Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra)  was present and was very impressed with the presentation.
