  1. Hallo, I`ve got a Question. At which date is the dance Festival in the year 2009. We like to visit it. Thank you for answer Martin

    Dear Mr. Martin,
    I am sure you will enjoy visiting this one!The dance festival itself coincides with the Hindu festival of Mahashivarathri which falls sometime in the end weeks of Feb or beginning March (The discrepancy is because the festival itself is celebrated according to the Hindu Calendar).
    You could write to the Natyanjali Trustee Board at the email address provided in the post or visit for more information.I will put in the date here, once I am sure of it.

    Best Wishes,

  2. My friend is a dance teacher (Kuchipudi form) running a dance school since more than a decade. Her students performance is awesome and moreover she manages both Nattuvangam and Vocal herself very well. If she would like to participate during Natyanjali 2009, what is the procedure to apply for and where can I get complete information/guidelines for participation? Would be very grateful if you could guide me to pass on the same to her.



    Dear Sheela,
    Please refer to post
    This gives the contact info of the 3 Natyanjali trustees, namely Kumbakonam, Chidambaram and Thanjavur for interested artistes. Please contact them for complete details…
