Philosophy

The style brought through the choreographer exemplifies a generation, which while remaining rooted in its rich cultural past and proud of it, carries the dignity of centuries into the present. The Ancient blends with the Contemporary, and new History is created.

We believe that through dance all ephemeral things can be portrayed with subtlety or with dramatic flair. Through the choreographer’s work we can reach the heart of issues, our most intimate fears and passions, our social relationships, and make them open to exploration by both the dancers and the audience.
We tell stories intertwined with intricate rhythms and complex movements; with musical compositions that are melodious and powerful at the same time; lit with all the artistry of lights and colorful costumes in such a way that you should leave our performance with some part of your soul touched.
Our themes are about today, about all of us, wherever we may be in the world. But we are today the way we are because of where we came from and what we were yesterday too and that is something we cherish as we step forward on the adventure of the new millennia.

  • Nurture future choreographers in the years to come from within the long-standing dancers in the company. Passing the Torch on; keeping the spirit of adventure alive!
  • Dance as a Sacred Communication: a communication that goes beyond language and geographical barriers; a communication that nourishes the spirit and the soul.
  • The belief in “Aamad” - the divine enlightenment of the true artistic soul that results in creativity, which cannot ever be replicated. A gift that must not to be squandered.
  • The tradition of Guru/Shishya Parampara -the very special bond between the teacher and the pupil, which flows down from generation to generation- with its embodiment of respect and caring and learning a way of life. All dancers coming into the company are trained under this guidance.
