It’s fitting for Ragamala Dance Company to launch its 25th season with Bharatanatyam icon Alarmél Valli. She’s an acclaimed performer and master teacher whose pupils include company founder Ranee Ramaswamy. Known for her poetic movements, Valli puts her distinctive stamp on the classical form, using its grammar and vocabulary to express her own lyric inventiveness.ROHAN PRESTON
