Founded in 1991, the nonprofit Jayamangala School of Dance will perform in concert during Saturday’s Intersections Festival at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington, D.C., prior to a performance the following week at the Mahashivarathri Celebration at the Sri Siva Vishnu Temple in Lanham on Feb. 27. Led by Shobha Subramanian of Laurel, the nonprofit aims to promote and preserve Bharatanatyam, an Indian classical art form originating in ancient temples of South India using rhythmic footwork, facial expressions and exquisite hand gestures to tell stories of Hindu gods and goddesses. Company members hail from throughout Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. For more information, visit
