For her Gold Award project, Kousanee taught Indian dance to 80 people in her community ranging in age from 4 to 40 years. She also choreographed 10 dances and taught them to various workshop participants based on their ages. She then created a DVD of the dances and distributed it to several libraries. This is an inexpensive way for community members to experience the world of dance. Kousanee will attend the University of Connecticut.
