NKKN dance academy foundation day on 01 June

Gangtok, 30 May:

Nataraj Kala Kendra and Nrityaanjali (NKKN) Dance Academy will be celebrating its first foundation day here at Manan Kendra on 01 June. The celebration will feature performances by prominent classical dancers Sandeep Malik from Kolkata, Sumi Rai and Anjali Rai along with other artists from Sikkim, informed Sumi Rai at a conference held here at the Press club of Sikkim today.

She said, “There are students who have the potential to make it big but are not given the proper platform to present their talent. There are boundaries everywhere to be crossed, and we as artists ourselves have faced similar situations and now we have come up as organizers to encourage these students and artists showcase their talent.”

Apart from the dancers, this event will also showcase musicians from Kolkata and Sikkim.

The headlining act for the event will be a classical Kathak performance with live music.

Ms Rai informs more than 60 students will be participating in the combined-event of the two academies.

This event will also serve as an initiative towards shaping the future of students from Sikkim who want to have a career in classical dance forms.
