About Sanjali
Sanjali Centre for Odissi Dance was established in 2004 by Sharmila Mukerjee. The dance institute provides a complete education in the Odissi dance form- the technique, the skills, the sadhana and the fulfilment. 

Sharmila Mukerjee, the director of Sanjali, is an established name in the world of Odissi dance today. Having started her training under legendary master, the late Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra, since 1984, Sharmila has been performing for almost 30 years now and is a Grade A artist of Doordarshan.  
About Hansika
Hansika is an adaptation of Swan Lake, a ballet composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in the context of Indian classical dance-Odissi. The ballet originating from Russian folk tales tells the story of Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse
This attempt to direct and choreograph Swan Lake in the garb of Odissi, by Sharmila Mukerjee,  is an extension of our quest for stories, which have had meaningful impact on the mindset of the audience worldwide. We would like to touch upon the humane aspect of the plot that strikes a chord with the audience, irrespective of whichever corner of the world it is staged at. Through Swan Lake, we would also like to experiment how ballet and libretto would be adapted to the Indian world of raga, taal, laya and rasa.
On March 31st, 2018, we, artists of Sanjali, will be presenting 'Hansika', at Chowdiah Memorial Hall, Bangalore. The production Hansika is aiming to raise funds for the development of an underprivileged school in Bangalore. Whilst this is a dream project of Sanjali's, we have inadequate funds to make this premiering a reality.
Our main aim for crowd funding is to cover our production cost of Hansika. We hope to raise the minimum cost to get the production on stage. We estimate a cost of Rs.9,90,000 including stage, sound and light, music production, costumes, artist's and technician's remuneration. We look forward to receiving your support.
Our dancers with Sharmila Mukerjee have been tirelessly rehearsing to bring Hansika at its best on stage. At this point, small or big, any donation will help us and we will be grateful for it. For our higher denomination donors (for donations Rs. 10000/- and above), we will be providing donor passes to watch 'Hansika' on 31st March, 2018 at Chowdiah.  
We thank you deeply for your support, and look forward to seeing you on the day of the performance.
