Nrityam 2022- Performing Arts Festival

17th Edition of Annual Performing Arts Festival, that brings onto stage creative works of senior artistes and diverse art- forms.



India, is a very ancient civilization is also known for its spiritual and artistic heritage.  

Both these are oral traditions passed on in a very unique process from master to puil known as the Guru Shishya Parampara.

Indian artistic Traditions are ancient, rich and diverse, handed down to us through an unbroken sweep of more than 5000 years. Our country is the only country in the world which has seven established classical dance traditions. 

It is our rich spiritual, cultural, artistic legacy that has placed India as a forerunner on the world map! As a society, we must afford far greater recognition to the value of the arts and creatively to our well-being. Indian art and creativity are integral to our cultural fabric and are among our nation’s most powerful assets.

Problem Statement

Preserving our artistics and cultural traditions is as much a social responsibility as any other cause.

The influence of western ideals and lifestyle and the advent of information technology, communication media and globalisation seems to have threatened and disturbed the traditional systems and practices, including our arts and culture. Besides commercial pressures, a lack of connoisseurs, dwindling audiences, dying up resources and a lack of facilities threaten the arts and its relationship with the community.

This project will accomplish these additional goals
