A First in Florida
Congratulations to Parth M. ('21) on performing his 'Arangetram', a classical Indian dance debut in the dance field known as Bharatanatyam. In recognition of his extraordinary accomplishment, Buddy Dyer, Mayor of the city of Orlando, proclaimed September 16, 2018 as a day in honor of Parth in the City of Orlando. As noted in the Proclamation, “mastering the complex art of Bharatanatym requires years of discipline, hard work, and dedication.” Parth is the first male graduate at Nritya Academy under the tutelage of Guru Geeta Raaj Karkera and the first male dancer to make a debut in this art field in the entire state of Florida. We join Parth's family in being immensely proud of his impressive performance and dedication to his rich Indian culture.

6:45 pm - 8:00 pm | Theatre
Guest Speaker: Kylie Gross, Assistant Director, Financial Aid at The University of Tampa
Understanding the financial options to pay for your child's college education is just as important as choosing the right college.
According to The College Board, approximately two-thirds of full-time undergraduate college students receive some sort of financial aid. Whether you are looking for assistance based on need or merit (or a combination of both), it is not too early to begin to learn about the types of financial aid that are available and how to navigate your way through the financial aid system!
All parents are invited to attend this informational program.
