Folk Dance by Nalanda
This workshop will discuss preservation of traditional classical styles in their formal purity by imparting training through the traditional guru-shishya parampara, adaptation of training methods to meet scientific and technological demands of the fast changing contemporary society and conducting research projects that enhance the understanding, appreciation and knowledge of dance not only as a cultural phenomenon but also as an adjunct to human development. In 1973, Nalanda Nritya Kala Mahavidyalaya became the first exclusive college for dance education affiliated to a premier university in the country. The strong academic approach at Nalanda has naturally created an ideal infrastructure and highly qualified personnel to conduct research in dance and allied arts. The research activities go much beyond analysis and investigation of the technique and performance of dance; the selected projects are aimed at enriching dance for the future by further development and spelling out its intended impact on human life and also its usefulness to the society. Uma Rele, Principal of Nalanda Nritya Kala Mahavidyalaya is the proud torchbearer of these young cultural ambassadors and is paving the way for dance education.
