Bollywood Birthday Bash and Fundraiser, July 13

2pm-5pm, Suggested donation $10 (doors 2pm, show 2:30, dance class 3:15, cake 4:30)

Irish traditional cellist and Bollywood dancer, Maialuna, is hosting a Bollywood dance show, class, and party! All funds generated by this event go towards her impending trip to Ireland to compete in the Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann! Simultaneously and serendipitously, we’ll celebrate her 16th birthday.

Join us! We'll:

  • Hear Maia perform her Irish competition pieces live
  • Watch Maia and the Bollywood Dance Scene Twin Cities perform.
  • Take the first Bollywood dance class with founders Divya and Jinal to be offered in Saint Paul. (These classes are very popular at Tapestry Folkdance Center and Powderhorn Park.)

Maia won first place in her category at the St. Louis Fleadh Cheoil in May, qualifying her to compete in the all-Ireland competition. The expense of her trip to Ireland is compounded by needing to travel with her cello - which needs a good quality case, and a flight case as well to help keep it from harm during the long flight. 

This party is just one piece of Maia’s financial strategy, which includes a wonderful summer job, busking, and a site on GoFundMe.

Come join us to bust a move, have some cake, and help Maia make it to Derry, Ireland in August!
