Indian Classical dance and music are spiritual in their essence, and their fantastic therapeutic value is amply proven. In an effort to take their beauty and meditation to wider global audiences, we have taken a different approach towards Indian Classical dance and Indian Classical music in the USA.

Indian music concerts in the USA historically presented Classical music both in vocal and instrumental categories. Indian music concerts in the USA also presented semi-classical genres of Bhajans and Ghazals, and popular Hindi film music. In the area of dance, with a few exceptions of dance-drama performances, the Indian Classical dance in the USA predominantly included the Arangetrams or Manch Pravesh of dance disciples in America.

Our theater shows like Celestia and Meet Me on the Meadow have brought in a new personification of Indian Classical dance and Indian Classical music in the USA to the audiences. These shows are performed on a recorded soundtrack where Indian Classical music is treated in a fusion style for a wider appeal to audiences of all ages and ethnicities.

For preserving and promoting Indian Classical dance and Indian Classical music in the USA we also routinely conduct appreciation workshops in all streams of Indian Classical dance and Indian Classical music where many unseen aspects of the artform are explored in conversation with acclaimed artists. Art grants from art councils, donations from art lovers, philanthropists and art patrons support our work in Indian Classical dance and Indian Classical music in the USA, for which we are ever so grateful.
