Hemantika festival: Support us

Kathak is one of India’s most popular classical dance forms and Hemantika festival  aims to bring the best opportunities for Kathak students, practitioners and audiences to the UK.  


Hemantika is more than just a festival – it’s a springboard for many to jump higher and dream bigger - a platform for providing opportunities, fun and education for all. It is SBDC's unique initiative, encompassing all of its activities and vision. 

We first launched Hemantika in Autumn 2016, as a celebration of South Asian dance in the UK, to showcase our incredible home-grown talent, bring world-class artists to UK audiences, offer hundreds of students and youth groups performance opportunities, create new works, deliver masterclasses and present thought-provoking talks & seminars. 

Looking ahead, our vision for Hemantika is to reach a wider audience, beyond the year 2021 and beyond the UK.

Your support will help us to reach new horizons; to develop our younger students to have a deeper engagement with dance; commission young professionals to work with mentors from far and beyond and widen the reach of Indian Classical dance forms. 

SBDC is a registered charity and all donations can be made via Total Giving or in person.

Many thanks for your continued support and encouragement.
