Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts has begun its call for application for the National Diploma Programme in Movement Arts and Mixed Media for the academic year of 2018/19.

Initiated in 2006, the Diploma is a one of its kind professional course for dancers in India featuring intensive training sessions in traditional Indian dance forms and international techniques. The Diploma is taught by Attakkalari’s network of Indian and international faculties and the programme runs for two years.

The auditions comprise an open workshop and direct screening of potential participants from across the country. We’ve kicked-off the auditions from April and aim to close them by September 2018. So far we’ve received an overwhelming response in the audition and open workshops and we aim to reach out even further!
