To do this, NCPA engages in a wide gamut of activities touching almost every aspect of the performing arts space, be it curation, teaching, research, archives, libraries, and knowledge sharing of the arts. Through classes and outreach workshops and classes in schools, invaluable master classes with maestros, classes at the Centre, it has always endeavored to ensure that interest in and appreciation of the performing arts is fostered, especially with the youth who are our audience and cultural ambassadors of the future.

The NCPA is a charitable organization with a governing council comprising eminent professionals and is managed by an accomplished team of performing arts experts and management professionals. The NCPA also has a dedicated CSR cell to focus on community initiatives.

As an organisation with a strong sense of social responsibility, the NCPA is deeply engaged in partnering with corporates, charitable foundations and trusts to deliver impactful CSR programs that address focus areas that are mandated in the Companies Act 2013:


  • Training in Indian and western music, folk dance and  theatre for children in underprivileged communities contributing to their holistic development ; support to promising talent through the Guru Shishya program, scholarships and master classes

Skill Development
