Very often we believe that the only thing that can help you earn a livelihood is a degree in a conventional field. But what if we told you that the applied arts are as important as well. Would you believe us? Not only do we believe in it, we advocate it. We are of the strong opinion that if a student is blessed with the talent of dance, music, other performance arts – we must encourage it. Who knows we may just be nurturing the next Arijit Singh or Kunal Kamra. Anant is a collaborative arts education programme between Flowering Tree Inc, USA and Light of Life Trust that empowers the Anando students to pursue careers in the performing arts.
Our Anando students who are interested and have the potential to do well in the performing arts are enrolled in this programme. Our children, especially those who requires support to overcome challenges to their aspirations in this field are chosen.
We prepare our students to appear for government recognized qualifying exams in Indian classical music and dance. This certification helps our students to open their own training institutes or to be placed as trainers.
We facilitate an enriched learning experience through audio-visual learning sessions in classical dance and music.
We ensure that a carefully curated annual syllabus is followed by our trainers so that our students get the best out of the programme.
We organize special guest lectures and performances by industry experts periodically to provide increased guidance and exposure in various performing arts careers.
Different workshops in instrumental, Indian vocal music, folk and semi-classical dance are conducted by us thrice a week.
To gain a firsthand experience in their chosen fields, our students are taken to various educational and vocational institutes.
It is an artists dream to perform in front of a live audience. Opportunities are provided to our Anant students to showcase their talents and skills at various school and taluka level events and competitions.
