The sprawling campus of Kaladarshini Institute is a place to visit for the people of the city during the month. With light music complimented by tender vocals, the place turns a venue for budding talent of enthusiastic youngsters who are seen pursuing fine-arts. Summer courses in music, instruments, dance and painting are not only keeping the students busy, but the institute is attracting morning walkers.
Nearly 500 students from the Telugu speaking States and from Bengaluru have enrolled in the month-long summer courses being offered in Keyboard, Guitar, Violin, Tabla, Kuchipudi and Bharatanatyam dance forms, besides vocal. Electric pads were added to the summer course. Nearly half of the students taking part in the camp were from Adilabad, Khammam, West Godavari, Guntur and other districts from the Andhra Pradesh.
Director of Kaladarshini Fr K Ravindra said, “We have added electric pads to the summer course list to encourage more number of children and youngsters who take a liking to it. Kaladarshini is all set to revive its practice of Dance drama in order to infuse more religious and social elements into these dance ballets. We are planning to come up with such programmes that could be performed pan India for the Telugu people who are spread out.”
Fr Ravindra also shared his plans to execute ‘Kaladarshini Siluva Natakotsavalu’ for stage artists and drama troupes of the State to come and participate. Most likely, the State wide competitions would begin from next January. “Continuous workshops, culture exchange programmes and art campaigns would be held in the campus here after,” he said.
