How many spins does it take to move the world?

As the company’s star, Gulabi Sapera is presumably the one who selects and arranges the regional dances and choreographs the ones with narrative content. In a Banjara dance, Dinesh Kumar (Gulabi’s son) and Rahki Poonan (her daughter) play a courting couple. Rather, he courts her, and she alternates between encouraging and evading him, except when they dance the same twisting, springy, stamping steps. Here “performance” comes into play.
