Dancing for a world celebration

‘Dancing is the poetry of the foot’ as per John Dryden’s perspective of the orb of dance, that has been the key philosophy and inspiration for India’s eminent danseuse Geeta Chandran and her lovechild - Natya Vriksha - the perfect platform for her abundant, dedicated passion and ability to nurture and harness talent, that firmly establish Indian dance traditions.

On the occasion of the 9th World Dance Day Chandran celebrated the charming nuances of Indian dance traditions, paying homage to the dance community with a showcase of several avtaars at the India International Centre Auditorium.


Organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and India International Centre, with additional support from the Sangeet Natak Akademi, NTPC and UNESCO, Natya Vriksha’s World Dance Day 2013 celebration offered the capital’s cultural aficionados, an assured opportunity for enjoying Geeta Chandran’s ‘Young Dancers’ Festival’ - a successful endeavour to create new spaces for the contemporary classical dancer, forming new frontiers of classical art, to reach out to new, young, audiences, believing and asserting that dance must be linked to life at the grass root level and that artists must make a positive difference to real living.

Indeed, Geeta Chandran’s World Dance Day calendar resonates in spirit -  Martha Graham’s sensibility that ‘Dancers are the messengers of the gods’.
