15 Years of Utpalasia!

All of us at Utpalasia are thrilled to be celebrating our 15th anniversary serving the Washington, DC Metro area with cultural heritage programs, wellness and social action events, dance and music classes and workshops, and the CID International Dance Certification. Our newest collaboration with A Mind For Change promises even more ways for us to engage in a meaningful way with our community. And it is all about building a diverse, welcoming community for all.

We are thankful for the hundreds of students we have had the privilege to train, as well as the support of program directors at various Smithsonian museums, the academic community and military who have made our traditional presentations to wider audiences possible over the years.

It has been inspiring for us to see the interest and enthusiasm shown by families, students, and schools as we continue our efforts to explore, engage, and enrich all ages in the incredible arts of the Himalayan region and South Asia.

We hope you will join us for some of our new public programs on holistic wellness, mindfulness, and fitness, as well as our classic and fusion dance semester and drop in classes. We’re ready to rock on! Are you? Check here for the next Meetup event: https://bit.ly/3TuHCiy
