CONCEPT NOTE:
With an array of diverse events taking shape almost every day, there is never a dull moment in today’s dance arena. However, amidst the ongoing flurry of activity, there is one particular day when dance lovers from across the globe, irrespective of the genre, come together to celebrate the spirit of dance. Indeed isn't this the beauty of International World Dance Day?

Shambhavi School of Dance, headed by Guru Vyjayanthi Kashi, has been committed to organizing festivals and events that make a difference for over two decades. Shambhavi believes that World Dance Day is about creating a cherishable experience and a memory to take home.  On the occasion of World Dance Day it wishes to gift the rasikas of Bengaluru a unique opportunity to witness performances of eight star Gurus - to create a treasured experience for the audience who get to see the magic that age and experience can add to a performance and more than all bring back memories of youthful dancing days to these gurus who have been part of the Bengaluru dance history since the 19th century.

The turn of events in today’s dance scene has been positive with numerous platforms to showcase the talent of young dancers. But how about the Gurus who chisel these talents to become noted performers? It takes years of passion, dedication and hard work to become a dancer and all the more to sustain as one. However, after the so called ‘shelf life’ of a performer is done, one is hardly invited to perform.

The Shambhavi team is thoroughly excited to dedicate this year’s World Dance Day to bring back the renowned gurus of Bengaluru to the stage. Celebrate the spirit of these gurus, who though they are in their 60s, have gone on to prove that age is no barrier to achieve and to contribute. Their service to the field of dance is unmatched and the experience that they encompass is something that the audience of Bengaluru, should witness and learn from.

Shambhavi is happy to begin the series with an extraordinary line up of gurus.
