_____________________________________________________
Developed by the Gharana Arts Organization, this festival is based on the idea of exploring the universal concept of rhythm and its particular manifestations.

This festival has three main objectives:
*Youth Engagement – educating young people to foster an appreciation for music and dance
*Quality Performance – showcasing rhythm and dance traditions from around the world
*Supporting Local Artists – featuring local groups with diverse backgrounds to create a unique network pool of artists in Ottawa

Headlining the festival, is a spectacular world premiere of ‘SLEEPING BEAUTY’

A Kathak dance adaptation bringing together the storytelling traditions of two distinct classical artistic styles. A journey where Eastern art form interprets a Western story culminating in a truly cross-cultural Canadian concept. A rare opportunity to experience true innovation without losing sight of tradition in current trends
A truly enchanting world premiere of 'SLEEPING BEAUTY' celebrating 150 years of Canada's cultural heritage!

*All music and choreography has been originally composed by Gharana Arts.
** This is a family event for children of all ages.

— — The Gharana Arts Organization
Founded by Ravi S. K. Singh and Kasturi Mishra, Gharana Arts strives to support the education and development of youth in the Ottawa community and perseveres to spread the practice of Indian Classical Arts to a new generation of Canadians. As well as offering classes in the classical traditions of Kathak (dance) and Tabla (percussion), the school is also the only North American institution accredited by the Prayag Sageet Samiti, and allowed to host examinations and certifications for its students. The organization equally strives to promote cultural and artistic growth in the community at large.
