Review for Jayadevi Arts Inc, Oakland Park, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I attended Jayadevi Arts Inc 5th United Phagwah/Holi Celebration on March 18, 2017 at the Central Broward Regional Park and was not prepared for what I saw. It was trilogy; you got a little history, demonstrations, the cultural and the artistic sides. Definitely the best to date!
I liked the trilogy concept. Showcasing our ancestry while simultaneously keeping it relevant by reaching out to the millennials & younger with the social media celebrities was ingenious.

I recently attended the "Ganges Meets the Nile" at the Miramar Cultural Center and once again, I was captivated by this performing arts production. It was a fusion of Indo-Caribbean and Afro-Haitian drumming and dancing. The venue definitely provided the professional environment to showcase an event of this caliber. At a time of such divisiveness, it was so refreshing to see these 2 groups of performers unite to show that we have so much more in common than differences. Congratulations on another fantastic event! Congratulations go out to the performers, technical staff, support staff and the JAI Board. Can't wait to see what 2017 will bring! After watching this fantastic show, it solidified my commitment to JAI's growth and development.

Jayadevi Arts Inc continues to reach new heights in unifying our diverse community and breaking barriers that divide us. Broward Cultural Division Public Art & Design Program is celebrating its 40th Anniversary and in honor of the anniversary, JAI was the only Indo-Caribbean organization invited to showcase public art in Broward County.
As JAI continues to accumulate accolades and recognition (County and State); it is also growing internally and empowering our Indo-Caribbean youth to embrace their culture to help propel them.
Congratulations JAI! Really excited to see the upcoming events!

I attended JayaDevi's Umrao Jaan ki Raat event last Saturday and I must say, I left with a feeling of anticipation that I can't wait for the next event. It was an evening showcasing the phenonmenal talent of our Indo-Caribbean Community. The performances were top notched and you can clearly see the level of dedication and committment that went into making this event the success it was. If this event is any indication of the what is in store for us from JayaDevi, then I know our culture will continue to prosper and forge a new identity in South Florida. JayaDevi Arts Inc is not only bringing cultural awareness to the community through visual and performing arts but also teaching and mentoring the dancers to be independent and confident young ladies. Congratulations on a phenomenal job and wishing JAI continued success in 2014!

I have been a member of this Organization for 2 years and I have personally seen the phenomenal growth of JAI in such a short time. They have never lost focus of their mission statement and continue to grow and educate our community through the Arts. The caliber of their Indo-Caribbean theatrical productions continues to exceed expectations.
For my nominal donation, I get so much from JAI; to me it's an investment in my children's future. The group continues to mentor and train dancers in awareness, discipline, self confidence and professionalism through the Arts.
A vivacious bunch of people with a common goal...preserving Indo-Caribbean culture.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand throughout the country.
