Natyosav is Natyom’s signature event held near the end of the school year. This event focuses on giving all performers a chance to perform and show off their skill set. This event is free and open to the public. There is usually food served to all attendees on behalf of Paving Hope as a way to encourage community events and raise funds for local charities.
Natyom Dance Academy proudly showcases the progress of it’s students in two annual recitals – Spring and Fall.
Natyotsav, the spring dance recital attracts a larger audience and has a festival feel to it.
Students who attended summer workshops present what they learnt during the summer in the Natyom Fall Festival which is presented in October around Dussera and Diwali.
We have students from different religious faiths at Natyom Dance Academy. Everyone is respected and have a chance to learn about seasonal Indian classical dance festival themes such as Ganesh Chaturthi, Navratri, Dussera, Diwali, Christmas, Pongal etc.
The two annual events also help new children and adults merge into our existing Natyom family with ease.
The bonding that students and families develop especially during the Fall festival in October forms determination to continue more hard work and preparation for the grand Spring recital held at the Irving Arts Center Carpentar Hall.
Just like preparing for any major Indian event, families enjoy attending classes, rehearsals, dress up & make up sessions, group activities and picnics.
Finally, in the month of May, after the Natyotsav event, we conduct exams for students and teachers to monitor skills and progress.
At Natyom, we hope to inspire each child through holistic learning to develop a sincere affection for Indian classical dance that would go on to last a life time.
Natyom also hosts a Dance Drama annually with senior students and Alumni. This is a ticketed event and all funds are donated to Paving Hope. Many affluent members of society are invited to see and contribute to the excellence of the arts for senior students and scholarships for performers.
Shows with purchased tickets will come with NFTs that double as tickets. These tickets will serve as a piece of memorabilia and will be given further extensive utility in the future.
Upcoming events will be added here soon…
