"It was an excellent performance from Sushila Goyal Group. Thank you so much for putting together some wonderful pieces of folk arts from Rajasthan and presenting it beautifully on the stage for everyone to enjoy. Nicely choreographed; Good selection of music and songs; The costume looked beautiful and dazzling. Props were properly and amazingly used by the artists. The flow of the dance from start to end was smooth and flawless. Nonetheless, all the performers did a wonderful job. There was a good understanding and coordination between all performers on the stage. The audience enjoyed your team's performance very much. There was a huge appreciation from the audience as many of them were experiencing Rajathani folk dance for the first time.
