Wow Jayadevi was given an opportunity of a life time!!!! to participate in a photo shoot for Broward County Public Arts & Design 40th Anniversary. Jayadevi Executive Director was awarded the Diversity and Inclusive Award and received the award from Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner. So far 2016 is heading in an amazing direction and hope Jayadevi continues to fly!!!

The United Phagwah/ Holi Celebration was spectacular!!!! Another amazing event! The Group from Suriname was fantastic and the dance style from Suriname was very interesting and incredible. Thank you for exposing use to our rich culture and art forms, we didnt know existed from the other Indo-Caribbean countries. The participation from the other organizations and the partnership from the Broward Sheriff's Office and Crime Stoppers was a FIRST in our community!!!! It was a great accomplishment to have the Broward County Co-sponsor this traditional culture. This is the first time this kind of event received funding in the US.

Thank you Jayadevi Arts for keeping our cultural alive and exposing and educating the larger American community what out little countries have to offer.

Jayadevi's Umrao Jaan Ki Raat was the talk of the town!!! The stage was transformed to the courtyard from the Movie Umrao Jaan, the students created their own solo dancers which displayed their skills and level of learning, the local singers Shaina Rashid, Vidya Gosine, Neera Maharaj and Neil Persad were exemplary and the guest artists Headliner Amit Inderdeo was exceptional and engaged the crowd they loved him!!! International Dancer Zaman razzled and dazzled the audience with his costumes changes, Wings prop, and great facial expressions. Indian Goddess Sundari--- a drag queen did a fantastic Mujra dance!!! The audience request the same performance a 2nd time back by popular demand! Which non profit Arts Culture organization recognizes and award members of the community for their outstanding achievements and dedication to the community??? Jayadevi did!!! The awards were not corporate standard awards but something that was artsy and would stand out in their collection of awards/trophies.

Jayadevi Arts a 5 year 5013c organization have been make WAVES in South FL. This event is just the beginning ...... In 5-10 years their vision is to have the first Indo-Caribbean Cultural Center in SFL !!!
