Akademi is delighted to have been invited to perform Indian Dance at the Third International Day of Yoga 2017 in Trafalgar Square on Tuesday 20 June. We presented Indian Classical medley and Rajasthani Folk dance performed by artists from Sarjan Nartan Academy and Arunima Kumar Dance Company . Earlier this year, Akademi performed at a reception marking the launch of UK-India Year of Culture 2017 at Buckingham Palace (Monday 27th February 2017).
Every year International Yoga Day falls on the summer solstice and events have been held since 2014 when Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi proposed the celebration. Organised by Indian High Commission, The Nehru Centre and the Incredible India Campaign of The Ministry of Tourism (Government of India), in association with the Mayor of London, this event drew thousands of Yoga enthusiasts from across London.
