Welcome to ChitraKaavya Dance
We are dedicated to exploring Bharatanatyam, an ancient Indian dance form.
ChitraKaavya Dance conceptualizes movement as a means of visual poetry. Our mission is
to help create and nurture strong intercultural connections between the Indian diaspora and the many vibrant cultures in the Salt lake Valley through the use of visual and performing arts, primarily dance;
to raise the level of discourse around Indian classical dance forms, and have them be recognized for their demanding, yet remarkably versatile vocabulary and
importantly, from the perspective of the next generation of the Indian diaspora, providing relevance and interpretability to the dance forms to nurture the complex sense of identity beyond the exotic or esoteric, moving ' beyond '…..
We plan to accomplish this by innovative collaborations between dancers, musicians, writers and choreographers from diverse dance traditions and by sponsoring workshops and lecture-demonstrations to help expand artistic horizons.
