Washington is hosting the Fall Festival of Indian Arts this week, which features poetry, music and a fusion of classical Indian dance with modern dance. Its founder Daniel Phoenix Singh grew up in a poor, fundamentalist Christian family in southern India and didn't see a live Indian dance performance until college. He works in IT during the day. He talks with Michel Martin about his journey into dance and his work bringing Indian dance to the U.S.
