Jayanthi Raman's traditional and contemporary choreographic works

“As Director of the Asian Studies program, I just wanted to say that we found your performance captivating in many ways.  First, the artistry, singing, and staging was superb.  I, like many in the audience, were introduced to a new world of Indian dance.  Your newest production allows both old hands and young students to stretch our imaginations beyond Bollywood productions.  Second, your work is a rich cultural resource that should be shared far beyond the Pacific Northwest.  Many universities and communities across America would treasure the opportunity to host your production.  Your work presents both its style and content in a way that I believe any audience will benefit from its rich cultural heritage.  Thank you again for visiting Central Washington University.”
James A. Cook, Ph.D.; Associate Professor; Department of History; Central Washington University.
