Special Activities

Milan :

We have a special way of welcoming our new students into experiencing the world of classical dance and knowledge through a creative entertainment program - “ Milan” - A cultural event put together by faculty members and the senior dancers of ADC. 

Upakrama :

Upakrama is a preparatory program for promising students of ADC who plan to take dance more seriously.  It is an opportunity to perform solo to a small invited audience. This trains the dancer to gain self-confidence, motivates them to work hard and introduces the dancer to the concept of performing to live music. It prepares the dancer to face the discerning connoisseurs at professional performances. 

This Year's Upakrama will be performed by Rohini Jayaram and Kavana Hegde in Bharathanatyam and  by Yuva Abhinava - Priyadarshini Sheshadri, Shreya P Vatsa, Pooja Arya and Harshitha Lakkur in Kathak on the 12th of August from 6 pm onwards.

Sadbhavana :

An activity that brings smiles on the faces and joy in the hearts of people from under privileged backgrounds. In this program ADC dancers spend time with senior citizens, inmates of old age homes & children from orphanages/special needs & share a life filled with dance, love and care. The dancers perform, interact, conduct workshops & also serve food with utmost love & care for all the members.
