Description

Anila Sinha Foundation, a not-for profit organization, with 501 (C) (3) status, was established in 1998 in memory of Mrs. Anila Sinha, who was herself a Kathak dancer and a pioneer in promotion of North Indian classical performing arts in North America. The Foundation seeks to: present, promote and preserve the performing arts of India; instill our values and heritage among the younger generation; and cultivate cross-cultural understanding among our students, who are both Indian and mainstream American. To implement these goals through dance and music education the Foundation has established Kathak Nrityakala Kendra in the Chicagoland area, an academy of Kathak Dance and Music with master artists and faculty from India. Kathak Nrityakala Kendra... Kathak Nrityakala Kendra emphasizes a thorough study of Kathak dance, music, choreography and stagecraft. The faculties of the academy consist of internationally acclaimed artists and choreographers. The academy, which has an average of seventy students and five centers in the Chicago land area, is affiliated with Prayag Sangit Samiti, Allahabad, India. Last year, forty students appeared at the examination conducted by the Prayag Sangit Samiti in both theory and practical at various levels and all of them passed with first division, some with distinction. This attest to the fact that the students at the academy here, who are both Indian and mainstream American, are taught according to the same standard of artistic excellence that exists in the top institutions of India. Though only less than seven years old, the foundation has completed six seasons of public concerts, workshops and performances at different venues both in Illinois as well as in neighboring states. The International Kathak Festival organized by the Foundation in 2004 was a great success. The activities of the foundation are designed to promote cross-culture understanding between broader community and the Indian community. ASF Dance Company...

During the past several years ASF has presented major dance productions including but not limited to, "Dansing -on the -Dunes" with live musician from Rajsthan, India, "Kumar Sambhavm" a Kalidas Classic, "Raj Nartaki" a dance drama based on a thru story, "Rang Rangili Holi" a production in celebration of a festival of colors in India with live music, "6th Element" a contemporary choreography based on Global Warming.
