Gearing up for our 10th show, Prayaas 2018!

Come 15th December, we will be back with our 10th annual show at Kamani Auditorium. This is an important milestone, as we complete a decade of learning, choreographing and performing. It has been a phase of experimentation and immense gratification.

Over these years, we have been blessed with the teachings and inspiring presentations of many great gurus, including Padma Vibhushan Pandit Birju Maharajji, Shashwati didi, Pt Deepak Maharaj ji, Mamta Maharaj ji, Pt Vikram Ghosh ji, Smt Roshan Datyeji, Smt Shikha Khare ji, Smt Rani Khanumji, Shri Ramakant Gaikwadji, Pt Sarathi Chatterjee ji, and many many more.

As we move into our final phase of rehearsals, we would like to thank them all and seek their blessings once more to help us channelize our best into our show.

Join us on the 15th December at Kamani Auditorium, Mandi House, New Delhi

We are still accepting contributions to our crowdfunding campaign!
