Anamika is a multi-style dance and music production with eight female student artists on female victims of trafficking and gender violence. We combined Ballet, Kuchipudi, Bharata Natyam, Gospel Music, Hindustani Music, Praise Dancing, and Irish Step Dancing to tell a story of a survivor through six different emotions.
