The workshop concluded on the second day with a group performance by Kathak students, a duet performance by Bharatnatyam students and solo performances by the foundation’s faculty members — Simer Sokhi and Shobha Bisht. Shyam also graced the occasion with a performance.

Speaking about the event, Shyam told City Spidey, “It’s great to see the excitement in children towards traditional art forms. It’s even better to see parents supporting their children in such pursuits.”

“It gives me immense pleasure to be part of such events where I can share my knowledge and experience. I hope more sessions are organised for students everywhere,” she added.

Satrang Kala Foundation, established in 2012, aims to promote Indian classical performing arts. Ganesh Sajwan, co-founder of the foundation, said, “We work with the belief that Indian classical performing art forms are a medium to search for life’s meaning. They also enhance wellness of an individual, and heal the mind and body.”
