The National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA), India’s premier arts and culture institution, presents Folk Dances of India, a six-day workshop for children that will give kids a sneak peek into the treasure box of folk dance forms.
At a time when Western and Bollywood dance is becoming more popular with children, and classes offering these styles are mushrooming across the city, the NCPA gives children a chance to explore their country’s own heritage and culture.
Through this fun summer workshop, Kalyanni Vrajesh offers a basic introduction to the folk dances of India, with forms such as Dandiya and Ghoomar.
The workshop is open to children in the age group of 8 to 14 years and they will be introduced to the basics of folk dances from Gujarat and Rajasthan.
