Silambam Houston was founded in 2002 by Dr. Lavanya Rajagopalan, for the promotion and development of the arts, to impart artistic education, and promote young talent in the performing arts.
Silambam Houston, founded in 2002, aims to increase the appreciation and understanding of Indian artistic traditions across cultural boundaries, through comprehensive arts education, outreach, and exceptional arts programming, and by creating opportunities for young artists to develop, perform, and collaborate.
The ancient language of the Indian classical arts forms the bedrock of Silambam's programming. The intricate footwork, sculpturesque poses, captivating facial and body language, and breathtaking costumes of our classical dance forms go hand in hand with the beautifully melodic and percussive elements of their classical music styles.
