Silambam Houston promotes and demystifies the Indian Classical Arts through comprehensive arts education and exceptional arts programming.
Silambam Houston aims to increase the appreciation and understanding of Indian artistic traditions across cultural bound aries through arts education programs, outreach programs, outreach performances and workshops, and by creating opportunities for young artists to develop, perform, and collaborate.
Indian classical dance, which is the bedrock of Silambam's activities and programming, is a complex and nuanced dance language that is thousands of years old. With intricate footwork, sculpturesque poses, captivating facial and body expression, breathtaking costumes, and beautiful melodic and percussive accompaniments, Indian classical dance combines several artistically stimulating experiences into a single performance art.
The organization is celebrating its fifteenth anniversary this year!
