About Us

Our Mission
The IndoRican Multicultural Dance Project, Inc. is dedicated to celebrating the cultural diversity of New York City and its inhabitants and in doing so, we encourage people to take a stand on events happening around them.  We also believe that education truly is the key for worldly accord.  The IndoRican Multicultural Dance Project, Inc. proudly caters to educating all children, including those with special needs utilizing space, colors, patterns, rhythms and expressive choreography.
Project Overview
New York City is the melting pot of culture and colors; therefore we intend to bring support, education, encouragement, social awareness and enlightenment to our audiences. We present concerts of various cultural backgrounds, with a focus on educating our communities. Our concerts and workshops are presented for two days, along with question and answer sessions among the audience, dancers and choreographers. 

Reasons for Attending and Benefits of Project
The IndoRican Multicultural Dance Project, Inc. would proudly present a colorful celebration of multiple backgrounds. Our concerts are family orientated.  Some of our pieces are focused towards our younger audiences and those with special needs. These pieces utilize very literal storylines, as well as colors and patterns throughout the movements to captivate a child’s imagination. For our mature audience, our pieces focus towards awareness of our community, messages of individuality as well as the acceptance of human needs.

She continued her education at Hunter College where she pursued a dance degree, and was awarded a scholarship to attend the Corvino School of Ballet. Teresa was also selected to perform with the Hunter College touring group and participated in the DaCi Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Though her studies at Hunter College were over, Teresa became an employee of the Hunter College Dance Program. She also received an opportunity to assist Dr. Jana Feinman in research for an Alwin Nikolais book.

Throughout her years of dance, Teresa developed a love for teaching and has been involved in dance education for twelve years, which lead her to accept a position to co teach at the Gateway School.

Teresa has studied many forms of dance, and found an obsessive love for Bollywood and Indian culture. Her love lead her to Sonalee Vyas and Naach Sensation where she continues to perform in Bollywood movies, music videos, touring and teaching.
