Vadhini Indian Arts Academy

Vadhini Indian Arts Academy


We were joined by dancers of the Vadhini Indian Arts Academy as they displayed their ‘Beauty of Dance.’ The idea behind the academy was to keep the nourish the Indian cultural legacy, with an objective of inspiring and installing an appreciation of the arts through participating in them.



The academy is Cape Town and was established in 1979 Shrimati Savitri Naidoo, who was one of the pioneers of Indian dance in South Africa. It tries to teach the diverse richness of India’s artistic traditions. The Vadhini Indian Arts Academy has over 80 students, that are catered to by 7 teachers, 6 supporting staff members and 2 student teachers. The academy consists of curriculum that teaches Classical Dance and Traditional Folk Dance, with new editions Contemporary Dance and African Dance, which were also added for senior dancers.



The Academy also offers an Adopt a Dancer Programme, which offers interested outside parties to be able to financially assist underprivileged dancers, be able to to further nourish their talent in the performing arts. The Academy’s graduate program specialises in Bharata Natyam and has helped develop awareness among and other genres of art forms.
