About this project

Erasing Borders: Festival of Indian Dance was launched by the Indo-American Arts Council in 2008 to promote Indian dance in New York City, the global capital for dance. It is a premier event that brings to New York Indian and India-inspired dance in an array of forms, old and new: concerts feature performances traditional and experimental, classical and post-modern, folk and popular. The outdoor performance is presented in collaboration with the Downtown Dance Festival. The Battery Dance Company’s Annual Downtown Dance Festival was initiated in 1982 to introduce a wide variety of worthy dance companies of all genres to the large and diverse audiences that gather in lower Manhattan’s public spaces. Goals and Objectives - Provide a platform for emerging dancers - Highlight new works of established artists - Reach diverse audiences - Develop appreciation for Indian dance - Provide a platform for choreography with high standards of artistic excellence. - Provide a forum for interaction and dialogue between dancers, dance scholars, writers and critics. - Provide a forum for exchange between Indian and non-Indian dancers and choreographers. - Develop credibility for the Indian performing art forms within the broader performing arts community.Erasing Borders: Festival of Indian Dance was launched by the Indo-American Arts Council in 2008 to promote Indian dance in New York City, the global capital for dance.
