I founded the ‘Kalaajna Dance Institute’ a year ago to pursue my passion for teaching and grooming budding Bharatanatyam dancers.
From my personal experiences as an artist, it has always been a struggle to find the right platform to showcase my talents. Those opportunities that came my way either had expectations that I perform without any remuneration or I had to pay and perform on their reputed platforms.
As a teacher, I would never let my students go through the same struggles that I had been through. I want to create opportunities for them by providing a stage to present their learnings. However, the budget is proving to be a challenge.
The estimated budget is approximately 1.5lakhs which includes auditorium, sound, light, photography, videography, costume, jewellery, makeup, stage decor, music, invitations, banners, emcee and so on. In order to realise this dream, we need sponsors who can fund the project.
