On June 16, 2012, Priyadarshini will present Odissi at the 1st North American Odissi Convention - Kelucharan Guna Keertanam - in College Station, TX.
In June 2012, on Rabindranath Tagore's 150th Birth Anniversary, Priyadarshini co-founded Sangeetanjali, as a tribute, and an endeavor to introduce Tagore's works to the kids of Stamford and surrounding cities, enabling them to explore this genre of music and dance, showcase their accomplishments, and hopefully someday be inspired by the genius of Tagore.
Priyadarshini will be teaching Odissi at a two-day workshop "Ta Ka Di Mi", at the renowned Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, NYC, on August 13 - 14.
Presented by the Ailey Extension, The Anamika-Navatman Project, and the Sa Dance Company, and supported by the Indo-American Arts Council.
