Ballerinas to enthrall Delhi audiences

With an aim of raiding the exposure and performance standards of the Indian artists, Elan Ballet – a contemporary and Ballet dance academy based out of Delhi is organizing India's first ever International Ballet Dance Festival. Starting from 6:45 pm, there will be over 45 artists who will be giving at least 14 performances at this festival.
The constant objective at Elan Ballet is to try and change the mindset of ballet dancers in India from merely wanting a certification course to actually looking for years of foundation training. The training programmes along with performance opportunities at the company are of the highest standards, through collaborations with prestigious faculty, both nationally and internationally. The company also provides support to exceptionally talented dancers to audition with companies abroad and/or to apply for scholarships for further training.
This festival will be featuring the beauty of western dance and will act as bridging the gap between India and rest of the countries in the field of dance. From Italy, two companies are going to perform at the festival, namely, Valentin Bartes – the President of Arte Italia Cultural Association and Roberta Ferrara – the director Choreographer of Equilibrio Dinamico Company and Artistic director of International Contemporary Project Experimental FOCUS danza.
