The Xpressions Tradition

Experience the difference! 

Established in 2003, Xpressions, is a leading dance group in the San Francisco Bay Area that specializes in Indian Folk-Dance Traditions. Led by Artistic Director, Srividya Eashwar, Xpressions dancers take great pride in presenting traditional choreography blended in new techniques to connect with a diverse audience. Our mission is to develop, promote and sustain ethnic dance practices from India and around the world and to serve as a cultural resource to engage and enrich the community.
Srividya hopes that her teachings of artistic Indian Folk dances along with collaborating and integrating with the best artistic traditions this area offers will help promote and preserve the cultures so that a new generation of dancers can continue to present the expressions of their heritage in this beautiful Bay Area.

In addition to Folk Dances, Xpressions also trains and presents Semi-Classical, Bollywood and Creative Fusion Dances. Our dance routines and presentations are always customized to the age group of the students to ensure song selections, costume and choreography are age appropriate. Xpressions is known for its creative and colorful choreography that helps a diverse audience understand and connect with their performances.

In the past 16 years, Xpessions has presented more than 15 in-house productions, supported art though workshops and performances at school and community events, developed cross-cultural presentations with other local groups and helped raise funds for many nonprofits. Our creative and colorful choreography has been recognized and awarded at many local competitions and in our selections to perform at the very prestigious San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival for 3 years (2010, 2013 and 2016)

More recently Xpressions conceptualized and co-produced ‘FolkSi’ the first Folk Dance Festival in Silicon Valley in March 2018, featuring more than 150 artists from local dance groups in the Santa Clara County.
