    Articulate Ability - Blind Dancers from India

    Buse Gowda, Guruprasad, Taraka Ramudu, Satish Rao, and Shivaswamy all hail from the rural districts of Karnataka, India.  What they share in common brought them together: they are all blind.

    At a time when no methodology existed to train the blind in the art of dancing, these men taught a teacher how to teach!  The awkward postures became graceful, the gestures more meaningful.  They are now at par with any accomplished dancers.

    Through more than 1500 international performances, Articulate Ability has inspired many people with disabilities to take on challenges and overcome what they may initially deem impossible.  Awards and accolades do not move them as much as the applause they hear at every curtain call.

    On October 11th, 2014 these 5 mesmerizing dancers will perform at the Regis College Fine Arts Center, accompanied by their dance teachers, Mr. Mysore B Nagaraj, and Dr. Suparna Venkatesh.
