Theory of Anything Podcast – Episode 6: Dancing the Ancient Forms

What’s it like to leave your home, your family, and your country and go to a whole new land and culture — possibly never to return home again? What challenges would you have to overcome? How much help would you receive? How would you blend your culture with the new one you just moved to?

What’s it like to dance 2000-year-old ancient forms as a way to express your culture’s ancient myths?

Sarika Nayak and her family left India for their careers and then started a family here. They didn’t originally intend to put down permanent roots, but now they are working on becoming citizens. Sarika brought with her a love of dance and love of people. She teaches dance to others emphasizing dancing from her own culture — both Bollywood and Hindu dancing.

In this episode, we talk with Sarika and learn what it’s like to start a new life in a new culture and how she successfully integrated her love of both cultures.
