Kalapryia 2014The Mandala Dancers specialize in Bharata Natyam, an Indian dance tradition whose history spans several millennia. Originally danced in the temple and at court by a specially trained class of female dancers Bharata Natyam, is a dance form recounting Indian mythology and cultural traditions. Today, it is the most widely practiced style of dance in India.


One of the Mandala Dancers’ core beliefs is that world cultures, and the art that reflects them, do not exist in a vacuum. They are constantly evolving, influenced by current events and enriched by cross-cultural exchange. The Mandala Dancers celebrate the rich, ever-evolving diversity of Indian performing arts through its work with a host of artistic collaborators, each of whom is a leader in his or her field.






The Illinois Prairie Community Foundation has graciously supported the 2014 - 2015 BCPA Student Spotlight Series with a grant through the Mirza Arts and Culture Fund.
