Description
One audio cassette. Born in Madras, India, Poornima teaches traditional Indian dance in Jacksonville. In the interview, she discusses speaking Tamil; living in India; emigration to the U.S.; teaching dance; traditional Indian dance; difficulties teaching children; family history; dancing and castes; and various dance styles. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Duval County was a joint venture between the Duval County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was started in 1984 by folklorist David Taylor with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts,and in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist which included visits by local folk artists. Taylor ran it until 1986. In 1988, Gregory Hansen re-initiated it with minor changes.
