Twenty five years ago, Anuradha Naimpally started Austin Dance India in her garage so that she should share her love of traditional Indian dance to her community. Now Austin Dance India is the preeminent performance company and school in Austin for Bharata Natyam dance. From teaching young students to putting on big showcases, Naimpally and Austin Dance India empower girls and women and give them a strong, tangible connection to their culture.
Arts In Context connects artists with arts enthusiasts to explore creative communities and conversations associated with Austin. By spotlighting visual arts, dance, music and culture, we hope to pique curiosity and inspire people to learn more about a subject, visit an exhibition, attend a performance or create and share something beautiful of their own.
