The program involved very creative choreography, music, background slides. All the dances received big applause from the audience. In Chicago area finally we have an "Indian Dance School" which has professional approach to making this dance popular in USA and has creative ideas - said a dance critic after the program.
The basic idea of the program was to portray life of brave queen of Jhansi. There were more than 40 dancers in the age group of four to fifty and they performed Kathak, Bharatnatyam, Ballet, and folk dances. The program began with Ganesh Vandana followed by performances from budding dancers who are in the various stages of learning. The main part of the program described the childhood of the queen, her growing up, and coronation with various types of folk dances. The confrontation between the British and the queen in the final battle was depicted as a Jugalbandi in Bharatnatyam and Kathak styles.
