Maitri Gala promises to have exotic elements of the grand royal Mughal era including our silent auction "Meena Bazaar", a scintillating dance performance, and a sumptuous banquet. We hope you will be able to join us in celebrating another year of service to the community on February 25, 2017 at the Crowne Plaza in Palo Alto. We are excited to feature Farah Yasmeen Shaikh, international performing Kathak artist, and her company, Noorani Dance, premiering Farah’s newest choreography, “Mughal Court”. The performance will showcase the dancers of the Mughal courts – displaying their strength, intellect, elegance, vulnerability, and charm through dynamic movement and technique steeped in the tehzeeb of the time period.
