Folk Dance Training for School Children
Annual Performances by Students
5th, 13th & 18th March
An NCPA Presentation
NCPA Nrityaparichay is a CSR initiative, supported by corporate organisations, which seeks to impart folk dance training to underprivileged children. Apart from the training, students are also provided with a rich understanding of the traditions and customs of the place of origin of each dance form. The programme encompasses visits to the NCPA to watch dance performances by renowned artistes and provide necessary exposure in terms of technicality in relation to dance. A total of three dance forms, including a martial art form, are taught in a period of one year, culminating in a stage performance by the students at the NCPA. With successful programmes for the last four years, the NCPA currently has projects running across six schools in Mumbai supported by leading companies. The students of many programmes perform on a regular basis with their teachers in recognised dance festivals.
Supported by Godrej Consumer Products Limited
