ST LOUIS: Meenakshi Kalyanam, the marriage of Goddess Meenakshi, was presented in the form of a dance drama by Nrityalaya Inc; a Chicago based classical dance company, on Aug 27 at the Missouri History Museum in St Louis, MO.

The production cast were all students of Nrityalaya ranging from the youngest at seven years old to the senior most student Sruthi Srinivasan, who is also the Associate Director of Nrityalaya.
The event was sponsored by Abhinaya of St Louis, a non profit organization for the promotion of classical dances of India. Abhinaya was founded in 1993 and since then has presented two to three productions each year by artistes coming from India, USA and Europe.
Meenakshi Kalyanam had a cast of twenty five dancers. The live orchestra consisted of Smt Ranganayaki Rajan as the vocalist, Sri Madurai Srinivasan Kannan on the violin and Sri G Ganesan on the Mridangam.
