Event Details


What is Natyam?


Natyam means “Dance”. Natyam is an effort by Ra-Ve to support and nurture our local dancing talents from NWA. A proud first stage for many great young talents and a continuing platform for other artists new and old.


Why Natyam? 


Natyam is an initiative by Ra-Ve to encourage and provide a platform to local talent -   Performing artists,  Students and Teachers. Any form of art is more meaningful when it is showcased. This is a great opportunity for parents to encourage their kids to perform before they go national or international. This stage will also be a great place to start collaborating with local experts. Any form of Indian dance – Folk or classical or contemporary or theater not deviating from our culture can be performed. We are open to welcome change in the right aspect.

Your membership with Ra-Ve opens many doors and opportunities for you as an artist. Due to the current pandemic, our final presentation will be online. The Event will be professionally recorded and participants will be provided a copy of their final performance.
