Inspired by the heritage and the cultural myths and legends of India, we create and craft dances that explore both modern and traditional elements, including rhythm and expression, the simple and profound. We take a particular interest in working with artists of diverse cultural and artistic backgrounds to come together on a single platform to develop inter-cultural awareness and dialogue through the artistic expressions of dance, music, theater and visual arts. This is the Rangoli Dance Company and the Rangoli Foundation for Art & Culture. Artistic Director and Choreographer Malathi Iyengar is the recipient of the 2013 C.O.L.A Choreography Fellowship from the City of Los Angeles and the 2010 Lester Horton Award for Outstanding Achievement in World Dance for her choreography ‘Shivaya’. Iyengar is a recipient of numerous awards for her choreographic works and is recognized as a Master Artist of Bharatanatyam dance by the Alliance for California Traditional Artists. Rangoli Foundation is celebrating its 30th anniversary with the 2015-2016 season.
