in collaboration with Battery Dance Festival This free performance will be presented in collaboration with the Downtown Dance Festival. The Battery Dance Companys Annual Battery Dance Festival was initiated in 1982 to introduce a wide variety of worthy dance companies of all genres to the large and diverse audiences that gather in lower Manhattans public spaces. The Festival places a strong emphasis on the inclusion of diverse dance styles and a multi- ethnic roster of performers. The Festival reaches an average audience of 2000 per day. Press & Media Coverage New York has long had festivals of African and flamenco dance; the dance forms of India are every bit as memorable. For that reason Erasing Borders: Festival of Indian Dance strikes me as the best new arrival on this citys dance scene in the last two years. Individual performances here have often shown various aspects of this area, but the Borders festival affords a survey of

its range, while honoring both traditional forms and modern developments. Alastair Macaulay, NY Times August might be a quiet month for New York dance lovers, but it brings one of the most satisfying events of the year: the summer performances of the Erasing Borders Festival of Indian Dance, presented by the Indo-American Arts Council. dancetabs.com What makes it marvellous isn't necessarily the quality of the dance (the event is an anthology of Indian styles) or the authenticity of its delivery (most of the music is taped and considerably amplified) but its sheer incongruity.The event's other great virtue is its diversity of styles deriving from different geographical regions. - NY Times While some Asian dance has been presented in the past at the Asia Society, it is "Erasing Borders" that unites us in greater dimension and artistic achievement. -Marian Horosko, www.exploredance.com Erasing Borders will forever change the way you view dance. Like the ballerinas of the past and the lucky audiences who have already

experienced the first free performance at One Chase Manhattan Plaza on Monday afternoon, you will find yourself awed by the beauty of this cultural exchange and what a skip across several colorful borders can provide. -E. Nina Rothe, Anjabee The festival exhibited a magnificent melange of styles and traditions. The educational component of the festival explored the complexities of aesthetics, sensibilities, issues and perspectives of the rich tradition of Indian dance, while at the same time nurturing exciting new dimensions developing in the Indian, American and global contexts. -Joseph Aranha, South Asian Insider Sponsor Opportunity IAAC partners with select organizations whose objectives align with those of the Dance Festival thereby engaging and nurturing longterm mutually beneficial relationships As the festival continues to grow, it becomes an increasingly formidable marketing platform for partners and organizations to garner targeted exposure
