Invite 19th Nov

Invite 20th Nov

Suchitra Date’s Nritya Prerana International School of Dance is once again holding “Nritya Sabha” A classical dance festival from the 11th of November to the 20th of November in Pune.

The dance festival is dedicated to the distressed children of war. Guru Suchitra Date, director and founder says “Looking at the unrest in the world, I was deeply disheartened by the negligence to the effects war had on children. What should be years of playing mischief, bonding with each other and spending time with family are spent in hiding or running away from troubled situations. It is unimaginable for us to not have a childhood and yet over million children can only dream of a normal life. Dance transcends caste, race and religion. We want to use this platform to propagate a feeling of community amongst people. It is only then that peace thrives.”

The dance festival begins with a “Navasandhi” Workshop from the 11th to the 13th November. Navasandhi Kauthuvams are traditional compositions, composed about 200 years ago by the ancestors of the Thanjavur Quartret. They comprise of nine dance numbers set in rare ragas. These kauthuvams are in praise of the lords of the eight directions - Indra, Agni, Yama, Nirruthi, Varuna, Vaayu, Kubera and Eshanna with Brahma in the centre. Famous Thanjavur Quartret family’s great grandson Guru Chandrasekharan Kittappa Pillai will be teaching this exclusive family choreography in Bharatnatyam. This is the first time the choreography is taught outside Thanjavur.

Dancers from renowned classical dance schools of India will be performing on the 19th and 20th of November at Balgandharva Rangamandir and Nritya Prerana’s Anganmanch respectively. Acclaimed Bharatnatyam Danceuse Ms. Nalini Prakash from USA is the special invitee and will be performing pure Bharatnatyam traditional compositions.

   Dancing : Artistry of Creativity  !

To create is to believe in the infinite ....

To create is to move with the power to Connect the apparent disconnects

To create is dare to reach beyond self limiting doubts and judgements

To create is to enjoy the process every step of the way ...

To create is to be uniquely you !

Most of us have indulged in one dance form or the other , enjoying the creative spurts in the process, but many of us assume that real dancers are those who are what we call the born artists, or the performers , or maybe only those who are trained or innately talented.

Dancing is an art form no doubt , but it is truly not reserved to a select few just because they have the privileges of being blessed with inborn talent .True gift of the power of dancing is equally available to everyone just as much as to the dancing genius! Indulging in any creativemovement satisfies an individual's need to source, analyse assimilate, and connect to the essence of the being . However the trick is in the integration of such artistic dance pursuits into our everyday lives ,as most of us lead such busy lives with little or no time to spare for a little self enrichment.

Dancing is a creative expression from your soul which has the power to explore the depth of emotions and thoughts and brings in the open what's hidden and inaccessible and thereby even heal oneself of limiting convictions and beliefs .

The creative surges gives rise to expansion of thoughts and one can feel transformed even in a single dance . We gradually become more balanced , focused and aware of our surroundings . We can simply start by bridging the dull gaps in our journey of life ... filling them with unique movements that are as fulfilling as much as they are enriching! So care to dance a little every day and enrich your life and also of those around you !

To Dance is to Celebrate Life!

A Painting  by Savvy Raj



Dance with joy and not with friction

 Dance with awareness not with caution

Dance with grace not with distraction

Dance with gratitude not with a contradiction

Dance to feel your soul move and not just as an action

Dance in response to an action  rather than just as a reaction!

Dance with the heart and mind  in rapt attention

Dance with expansiveness accepting correction

Dance often, in prayer and dedication

Dance with a  conscious acceptance of   the divine connection

Dance with elegance and the harmony  of completion!

Savvy Raj
