In 2019-2020, CICD celebrated its almost 40-year-old costume archive with its project Poshak Puralekh, funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund. This project looked at around 300 costumes accumulated since the Centre was formed in 1981 by Nilima Devi MBE. The best selection from these costumes was then presented to Leicester Museums, Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Nottingham Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
Whether you’re looking to learn new dance moves or hone in on your existing talent, this class is what you are looking for. The instructors are committed to giving each student attention while also moving the class forward. We’re happy to answer any questions you have about this class or any others - simply contact us or stop by.
PLURALITY OF ABHINAYA
A beautful exploration of 'Abhinaya' by acclaimed classical dancers – Nilima Devi MBE (Kathak) and Anusha Subramanyam (Bharatnatyam). Enhanced by live music, this was a true collaboration between the archaic and the new, transmitted through expression and emotions found in 12th-century Indian texts, contemporary Britsh poetry and real stories taken from community women.
