Journey: Established in 1991 by Artistic Director Smita Vadnerkar, Nupur Arts has gone from strength to strength. Enriching the local community through dance activities in schools and centres, Smita’s classes grew from Bharatanatyam to more contemporary styles.
Through outreach workshops and performances, now over 200 students learn at the classes and over 25 years a new generation of young leaders has emerged who are seriously involved in production, script-writing, teaching, media documentation, composing and administration of the classes and productions. Through Nupur Arts, hundreds of young people have becoming culturally aware, confident, creative and energetic adults making a positive contribution to Leicestershire and beyond.
Weekly dance classes are regularly run throughout term time at local venues and popular stage productions and performances are delivered several times a year. Nupur Arts is an exciting organisation that grows organically according to the strengths of its team, teachers and students.
