Always choose a good seat before a dance performance. That was the lesson of the day. When the dancer was performing, I was scrambling for a good vantage point to click pictures. The lens with zooming capability seemed inadequate to capture the best expressions and mid-air leaps she performed. Although I tried many combinations on the camera, this was the only one I liked from many pictures I took.
I neither know the name of the dancer nor the art form she was performing. Yes, I was not attentive when the announcements were made. This picture was taken during Fete de la Cite organized by the residents of Maison de l'Inde. It was a great afternoon with food, music and dance programs. This also happens to be one of the rare occasions in Paris where Indian culture is showcased.
