About Us


Dear Friends,

Following our hugely successful Naatya Sandhya - Part 1 we're here to present Naatya Sandhya Part 2 to be held on 31st January, 2014.

One keeps forgetting his or her origin and tries to accept western culture with open arms. Let us remember the classical art forms of the country and be individually responsible in promoting them. The beauty and divinity that a dance has can never be matched with any other mode of entertainment.

It is important to create an interest within the community and take pride in promoting the ancient art. In light of this trend, traditional local art forms need to be preserved so that they are not lost to future generations,

The objective of this programme is to identify and promote talented young artists of the country in the field of classical dance. Identifying and promoting talented young artistes is one of the assured means of preserving the traditional arts in live practice. It is in this backdrop that IWCF has initiated this programme to encourage young talent in the field.

It is a solo classical event where artist perform on recorded or live music. The programme features 3 art forms. The programme duration for each art from is 30 minutes.

The event is held under the aegis of IWCF to promote and create a cultural awareness and appreciation of our own classical arts especially among youth. The programme showcase eight classical dance forms namely Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Odissi, Kuchipudi, Mohiniattam, Manipuri, Sattriya and Kathakali.

There is an opportunity to be a part of this grand event. We invite requests from our member artists who would like to be part in this event. A fixed remuneration of Rs. 2000/- (inclusive of all) will be paid to each selected artist. The performing artistes shall be from 3 different states.
