Leela Samson & Spanda Dance Company

Dating back at least as far as the turn of the second century (yeah, you read that right), Bharatanatyam is a traditional form of Indian dance that often gives interpretation to important myths and/or spiritual concepts from Hindu texts. Characterized by fixed torsos, impressive footwork, and a complex language of hand symbols, the form, probably India’s oldest dance style, holds profound religious and cultural significance. Thus, being a master of Bharatanatyam like Leela Samson requires knowledge and intuition that operate on multiple levels simultaneously. Bringing her own personal vision and experience to bear on centuries of tradition, Samson and her Spanda Dance Company, which she founded back in 1995, land on the Carver’s stage courtesy of the nonprofit Arts San Antonio.

Sinya on Lone Man Creek in Wimberley
“Absolutely perfect weekend getaway! We were worried that it might be too hot inside the tent, as both my husband and I love our room cold, but it was perfect around 70 degrees…especially in the summer. Bed was very comfortable and you could just sink in and sleep. I slept so deeply. It is a beautiful, serene place to stay and I could not recommend it more!” - Yelper Larissa I
