For over forty years, Natya Dance Theatre has been a leader in the Chicago dance community, and our commitment to passing our art to the next generation remains strong. Natya has been recognized and honored nationally for being at the forefront in sustaining the cultural heritage of South Asia. With your help, we can continue to present the highest caliber of international artists, create a platform for our dancers, teach Bharata Natyam as community outreach and impart our philosophy through dance.
By making a gift today, you help insure the strength of our programs for the coming year. Any size gift is appreciated and meaningful. For example:
- A $50 donation will help cover a studio rental for extra rehearsal;
- $100 will send a child in need to classes for an entire month so that their artistic development is not limited by their income;
- $250 will significantly alleviate our operating costs, to support and efficiently run our school.
With your help in nourishing our cultural roots, we can grow and branch out to share the beauty of our art and culture with our community and the world. Thank you!
