DANSENSE-NRTYABODHA where artists create together in an inclusive, boundless space
Dansense-Nrtyabodha is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and is rooted in the concept of rasa—deep engagement—which acknowledges that by their very presence in a space together, every person--artist or audience--contributes to an experience in that moment. Dansense, therefore, aims to foster:
community--engage, collaborate and create with dance and make it accessible to every body and any experience,
learning--propagate Bharata-Nrityam pedagogy and the Collaborative Action Dance Project (CADP) model so any student of performance arts can deepen their practice, and
spiritual growth--support the artist's inner journey and facilitate reflection, self-expression, dialogue, and healing.
The mission of Dansense is based on its values of liberation, fearlessness and the radical, inclusivity and individual voice, collision in positive encounters, and expansiveness and plurality.
Dansense does not discriminate against any person on the basis of actual or perceived race, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, language, class, age, ability, or disability.
