Anya Bhojwani (pictured, fifth from left), a tenth grader at Awty International School, and Farhana Alapat (pictured, fifth from right), a seventh grader at Pin Oak Middle School, choreographed a dance performance for Bellaire’s Diwali celebration. Organized by Bellaire Desi Group and held at Zindler Park, the festival featured entertainment and delicious Indian food. Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, symbolizes the victory of light over darkness and is traditionally celebrated with plenty of pomp and splendor. Anya and Farhana have taken part in the annual celebrations, by dancing to Indian music, and this year led a group of almost 25 children in a five-minute dance they created. The girls worked with the group for six weeks with weekly, two-hour practices to prepare for the festival to show their love of both dance and Indian culture.
