Drishti Art Centre is one of the foremost art organizations in India, recognized for its sustained promotion and propagation of Bharatanatyam, one of the popular Indian classical dance forms. Drishti Art Centre provides opportunities for innovation and creativity in all its training as well as performing activities.
The objective of any artist or organization should be to create more rasikas or art-lovers for perpetuation of art in society. The objective of Drishti Art Centre has always been to project Indian classical dance, especially Bharatanatyam, as aesthetically as possible, not only to inspire artists and art lovers, but also to popularize it among common people. We have largely succeeded in reaching out to all sections of society through our dedicated efforts with various activities conducted over the years.
