Spark revels in the skill and tenacity of individuals who are keeping their ancestral traditions alive through the arts. First meet Vishal Ramani, who has spent the last 25 years passing along the finer points of classical Indian dance at Shiri Krupa Dance Company — 9,000 miles from her homeland. Then, travel to Yosemite, once home to some of Native America’s most skilled basket weavers, where Julia Parker is helping to revive the art form and tell the story of the valley through basket weaving. And finally, prep for Carnaval Bahia-style, with choreographer and teacher Conceição Damasceno and watch as she shares Brazilian culture.
