2024 Culture on the Green Series

Mudra Dance Studio

Mudra started in 1993, growing to 100+ students today. The studio became a non-profit in 2001. Mudra celebrates East Indian cultural diversity using the medium of dance and music. Our students learn the beautiful rhythmic movement of the North Indian classical dance “Kathak” (dancing a story) with folk and modern elements.

This dance form is visually compelling and physically challenging. With fast paced foot movements and multiple “chakkars” (turns) that leave the viewer memorized. Along with learning the “Mudra Choreography,” a style that has been developed over the years, we strive to build the dancer’s stamina and flexibility by teaching them how to isolate muscles and use their bodies as a form of expression. Students of all ages and background are welcome; passion is the only prerequisite.

Michael Friedman: Jazz & Funk

Michael Friedman is a widely respected bassist, composer and educator based in Denver, CO.  Michael has been captivating audiences with his bass playing for years.  He is a powerful, energetic artist who can go in a variety of musical directions.  “A Colorado mainstay,” wrote Bret Saunders of the Denver Post & KBCO Radio.  “His bass playing is as in the pocket as it gets,” wrote Jonathan Widran of the Los Angeles Jazz Scene.  Michael has performed on and composed for recordings that have reached the top of national music charts and have received widespread airplay.

The Michael Friedman Band was formed in 2003.  They will get you moving with their musical blend of R&B, funk, jazz & originals tunes!  The group has a proven performance track record throughout the Colorado Front Range.  They have become a favorite of music lovers and promoters alike.  The band includes some of Denver's most accomplished musicians that have national acclaim of their own: Robert Johnson (vocalist), Eric Gunnison/Justin Adams (keyboards), Bob Rebholz/Jeff Nathanson (saxes/flute), Larry Thompson/Brian Mikulich (drums), Randy Chavez/Mike Abbott (guitar).
