Blue13 dance company will make its debut at the Edye Second Space at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center with a one-night-only performance of the company’s newest show, Bollywood Delicious, at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, April 26th.
Director Achinta S. McDaniel delivers a dance theatre show of contemporary Bollywood dance and parody presented in blue13’s signature Bollywood-Tech style.
Bollywood Delicious puts a twist on the typical Bollywood show, featuring satirical tongue-in-cheek pieces, along with restaged blue13 audience favorites and new works by assistant choreographers, Kory Keith, Arun Mathai and Rashi Birla.
“We are thrilled to be making our debut in the Westside’s newest state-of-the-art venue, The Edye,” said McDaniel. “This is a show the entire family can enjoy.”

Since 1999, blue13 has performed nationally, both onstage and on screen, in a variety of genres, including McDaniel’s signature Bollywood-Tech and Neo-Kathak styles, as well as in contemporary, ballet, jazz, hip-hop, fire dance and aerial arts.
