ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A different type of dancing was taking place in Ablany Saturday night.

An Indian dance group known as Natyanjali performed at Albany State University.  The dancers performed solo dances that reflect the music and culture of different regions in India.

More than 400 students and faculty came out to see the performance at the ACAD Autidorium.

"It brings different people together who normally wouldn't be at an event in Southwest Georgia and the ASU campus," said Elliford Porter who helped organize the show. "It really helps us to open up our minds and broaden our horizons."

Proceeds will go towards building ASU's graduate program.
