Folk Dance Training for School Children
Annual Performances by Students
An NCPA Presentation
Nrityaparichay is a CSR initiative of the NCPA that imparts folk dance training to underprivileged children through well-known experts. Apart from the training, students are also provided with a rich understanding of the traditions and customs of the dance form’s place of origin. The programme also 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 with a stage performance by the students at the NCPA. With two successful programmes last year, the NCPA currently has projects running across six schools in Mumbai supported by leading companies.
Supported by Kotak Mahindra Bank Ltd.
Close to 150 students from three different schools – Dharmveer Sambhaji Vidyalaya from Vikhroli, Dyandeep Sevamandal, Nerul, and Baljeevan Trust, Vakola – will showcase an evening of folk dances and martial art forms from around the country including bhangra, garba, Bengali folk dance bhatiyali, bihu and mallakhamb, kalaripayattu and vyam (exercises) from Kerala.
Admission on a first-come-first-served basis.
