Dandiya Raas Night is an enchanting evening of ethnic folk dance. Dandiya Raas is a high­ energy group dance from India that is rhythmic and fun for everyone. Beginner instruction will be available. Children and adults are welcome.

Last year’s event had strong support from the Leland and Almaden Valley communities with over 350 people in attendance. Many were dressed in colorful traditional attire, and all had a fun and joyful evening. Leland High School students were well represented and their energy was evident on the floor.

All proceeds go to Leland High School academic enrichment programs, capital improvements, and student equipment and supplies. This year’s event is sponsored by Almaden Physical Therapy.

The event is at Leland High School on Saturday, September 24, 2011 from 8-11pm. The price is $12 per person if you pay in advance. $15 at the door. Children ages 4 and under are free. For tickets contact Priti Patel at 408-218-1258 or homesbypriti@yahoo.com.
