NRI dancer performs to raise funds for US school

INITIAsharanyaSharanya Balaji, 16, a classical dancer, is to perform at a concert in California to raise funds for a very poor elementary school, the Grant Elementary School, that lacks basic facilities.

The Principal of Grant Elementary said there are many ways to raise a well-rounded child and the arts are one of them. Sharanya said she was shocked that Arts education was missing and she meant to do something. She will therefore perform at Los Altos High School in California.

Sharanya who is a senior at Harker School has won many competitions all over the world. She has been dancing professionally since she was 12, and has raised funds for the school earlier as well.
