Meet this dancer who is fighting for the art form’s social esteem, one move at a time

Hindustan Times, Pune | By Anjali Shetty
UPDATED ON MAY 20, 2018 04:23 PM IST
Jayachadran Palazhy, artistic director, Attakkalari Dance Company, has helped many young dancers coming from humble backgrounds become successful dancers, choreographers and teachers. Palazhy adds, “There were a few institutions set up for classical dance forms to protect it from disappearance, which was also a political project of sorts. However, there was no institutional or financial support for contemporary expressions in dance and it was not part of the vision for dance in India for the government. The development as well as social esteem of dance suffered as a result.”
