GAL APPROVED! Mariah Dances, Twin Indian Dance Stars & Star Wars!By The DivaGals | December 18, 2015 | Gal Approved
SEE. Do we really need to even mention it: it’s STAR WARS: The Force Awakens! Of course, this Star Wars is the most diverse episode yet. British thespian John Boyega stars as Finn, a Stormtrooper (we always wondered what type of man was behind the uniform, and know we know, and LOVE!). Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o plays a small pirate ΓÇô no really ΓÇô she’s all CGI!. We want to bring you a real, honest reaction to the flick as the universe does, so a bunch of DivaGals are seeing the film today. Check our Twitter account @TheDGDs for our unbridled reactions!
DISCOVER. We were invited to a really cool concert inside Jazz at Lincoln CenterΓÇÖs Frederick P. Rose Hall last week. Twin sisters Riya and Sara Kapoor, 15, who have studied the Bharatanatyam dance form from their native India, made their Rangapravesh — or onstage debut — in the show ΓÇ£A Night of Moves.ΓÇ¥ They performed the 2000 year-old dance form under the training of their Guru Swati Bhise, alongside the Carnatic Orchestra and a New York jazz quartet. It was the first time this ancient tradition was done in this format. We loved that the night’s emcee was their little brother,┬áKavi . One of our favorite performances was their artistic portrayal of the 9 Rasas, better known as the Nine Emotions we all go through. The one we were feeling all night? JOY!
WATCH. First tune in to watch A Christmas Melody, which Mimi directs and stars in. Then stick around to watch Mariah CareyΓÇÖs Merriest Christmas, ’cause you know she’ll be breaking out all the jewels, glitters and pipes. Both air Saturday, Dec. 19, starting at 8 p.m. on Hallmark Channel.
