Dilip Chauhan praised the parents for enrolling their daughter in the field of traditional dance.

Molloy College of New York organized a dance performance of Anmol Patel, Anisha Shah and Mansi Shah on March 31, 2018. The artists performed the presentation of Teen Taal Kathak Dance Debut at The Madison Theatre of Molloy College in the presence of more than 650 audiences.

The program started with Ganesh Vandana. The chief guest for the program was Hon. Dilip Chauhan, former deputy comptroller of Nassau County, New York. While addressing the audience, Chauhan spoke on the importance of dance. “What is dance. Dance defeat all negative energy via creative expression,” he said.

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, culture and art is like a tree without roots, show me a person who found love in his life and did not celebrate it with a dance, Dance is the timeless interpretation of life. I think music in itself is healing. Its an expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we are from, everyone loves music,” Chauhan added.
