This will also be a celebration of Abhinaya’s 15 years of providing globally recognised, high-level training in classical Indian Bharatanatyam Dance.

Abhinaya is working with the University of the West of Scotland to develop a community collaborative approach which offer something for everyone and the festival will include professional and award-winning artists from India: dance performances and workshops from the UK ranging from Step Dancing to Bollywood dance, from Scottish Country Dance to Bharathanatyam and other performances such as Japanese Taiko Drummers and Carnatic Vocalist. A high-quality programme of events will include cultural opportunities such as Henna hand painting, Chinese calligraphy, children’s art & crafts workshops, a food court, of course, and opportunities to buy quality gift and clothing items.

The MELA will lead into the ceremony – Salangi Pooja – of Abhinaya’s young students who have trained in Bharathanatyam and passed Grade 4, globally recognised exams.

The MELA will be completed with an evening SHOWCASE – when all the students of Abhinaya will show what they’ve learned. While most have been trained in the classical South Indian dance form, others have enjoyed Dancercise, a unique fusion of dance and exercise created by Abhinaya’s Artistic Director, Esther Sunija Binu.
