Agni is the Sanskrit word for fire, the elemental phenomenon that is all consuming, raw energy. And that vibrant energy is what drives Prakash Mohandas, founder of Agni The Dance Company, his approach to choreography, and providing performing arts education. Since Bollywood is defined as any dance done to Indian or Hindi film music, Mohandas and his team bring together people of all ethnicities and break down cultural barriers as they participate in the musically inspired choreography.
