Professor Mahak Jain Publishes New Children’s Book

This March, professor Mahak Jain (FHASS, CW&P) published Bharatanatyam in Ballet Shoes, a picture book with Annick Press. The book is illustrated by Anu Chouhan.

Inspired by the real-life collaboration between Bharatanatyam dancer Rukmini Devi Arundale and ballet dancer Anna Pavlova, the book tells the story of Paro, a girl who learns to combine the Bharatanatyam dance she has learned from her mother with the dance she learns in ballet class.

The book can be purchased anywhere you buy books, or from any local/independent bookstore (find a copy here).

Congratulations Mahak!
