Shiladhish Art & Research Insitute
Established in year 1986, Shiladhish Art & Research Institute has over the years carved a niche for itself as one of the leading institutes for classical dance training in Mumbai.
The brainchild of Bharatnatyam exponents Deepak Mazumdar & Prakriti Bhaskar, it has been instrumental in propagating & popularizing the magnificent classical dance-form of Bharatnatyam amongst the cross-cultural youth of the metropolis for nearly 2 decades.
Apart form training, the institute also focuses on the importance of spreading awareness of the rich cultural heritage amongst the uninitiated. It has taken several initiatives to make classical art more accessible to the layman & help many shed their inhibitions about classical arts, thereby creating an enthusiastic audience for the performing arts. In the recent years this has been its most significant contribution to the arts & society at large. The institute believes that along with the practitioner, the audience is a very crucial factor for any traditional art-form to be preserved & passed on to the next generation.
