About the College

Created in 1952, the Kendra has a rich history of success in the world of Performing Arts. It is a vibrant cultural hub that displays a combination of rich Indian traditions and modern views.

The Kendra's objective is to offer each student education in a secure and supportive atmosphere that encourages a passion for knowledge and understanding, helping them to develop strong values, self-discipline, motivation, and excellence in learning. The Kendra also helps students build their skills, promotes them to be self-reliant, and prepares them to be responsible citizens.

The learning process is viewed as both rigorous and enjoyable at the Kendra. We believe that art education should promote creativity, independent thinking, and a solid base in one or more Performing Arts fields. We provide learners with not just good education but also an interesting environment to train and perform.

At our College, the students are encouraged and inspired to become responsible for India's rich cultural heritage. Here, the students have the opportunity to be exposed to the diversity of India's Performing Arts through a variety of courses. Prominent art forms such Hindustani Classical Music and Indian Classical Dances including the Mayurbhanj Chhau Dance style are taught at our College.

With the facility of a wide range of courses, students can either explore their selected music or dance styles as a hobby or they can also choose to prepare themselves for a performing and/or teaching career.

The faculty include gurus from several fields who have won awards for themselves and the Kendra. Some former students driven by a desire to give back something of what they have learned here also form a part of the Teaching Body.

The Kendra's library houses a unique collection of books, archival data, audio, and visual recordings. With its Kamani Auditorium, Campus Grounds, a Students’ Hostel and a Canteen, the Kendra is a hub for Performing Arts based in Central Delhi. It has a full calendar of cultural events in which every student is encouraged to participate actively.

Besides regular classroom activities, the students maintain contact with Kendra's famous Performing Arts Group, a dance company that performs widely in India and internationally. Talented students get the opportunity to perform with the group, a benefit that contains the reward as well as the excitement of performing on biggest stages, nationally and internationally, and working with inspirational choreographers.

Being chosen to be a part of Kendra's Student Body is both an honour and a duty. Those admitted will be directed and motivated in their work by the artistic passion of teachers and other students who currently learn here. The Campus is located in the heart of Delhi’s cultural hub, the Mandi House area. It nestles in the calm atmosphere of about two acres of space, surrounded by several prominent National Centres of Arts namely, Sangeet Natak Akademi, Lalit Kala Akademi, and National School of Drama. With a large number of theatre halls, open-air performance venues, art galleries, studios, libraries, and cafés, the area around the college gives an excellent opportunity to its students to experience the best of Culture and Performing Arts. The campus is within a short walking distance from the Mandi House metro station.

Bharatnatyam and Kathak dance forms are much respected and celebrated across the globe. Be it the beauty of Bharatnatyam steps or the nuances of a Kathak dance, audiences continue to marvel at the breathtaking performances that both these dance forms bring forth. There are many Gharanas for Kathak like Lucknow Gharana and Jaipur Gharana that help impart world-class knowledge and ensure that students learn Kathak dance in Hindi. Typically, the facts about Kathak dance are taught in Hindi to ensure the performers are well-versed with the detailed information and the Kathak exam levels are also at par with global standards.

Besides Kathak and Bharatnatyam classes, SBKK - a Center for Performing Arts in India - offers online Tabla classes and Mayurbhanj Chhau sessions to help the students excel in the stream of their choice.

Library

To attract its college students, Kendra’s Library and Information Resource Centre was created. They are encouraged to read books to instil Arts, Culture, and Heritage in them.

It has also been observed that the reading habits of students nowadays are at a minimal level, with an increasing number of youngsters gravitating toward electronic media. With over 4000 books from varied fields, the users of the library have rich and stimulating experiences.

The ‘Kendra’ is also in the process of digitising its music archives which date back almost six decades. Digitised recording of most of India’s prolific Hindustani Classical Music will be available to the listeners.

1. Annual Founder’s Day Programme – Performance by students of all departments.

2. Senior students are permitted to participate in their Guru’s private performances.

3. Festival of Music & Dance by outstanding students and ex-students of the Kendra.

4. Opportunities to learn and experience associated crafts and skills – ornament and costume-making, stage work and backstage support, light and sound designing, compering, programme presentation, auditorium management, designing of brochure, and programme literature etc.

5. Participation in sponsored shows outside.

6. Many students who have passed out of our college have had success in their careers. They have opened their institutes in India and overseas, become famous performing artists or have become Dance/Music teachers in prominent schools all over India.

7. The Kendra organises a range of annual events and programmes throughout the year. These include Shri Krishna, Shri Ram, Shriram Shankarlal Music Festival, and Kendra Dance Festival. Regular monthly or quarterly programmes, such as the Jhankar series by eminent guest artists and the Ankur series of students’ performances are also held. The Kendra expects the students to participate actively in all functions. The ornaments and costumes are all made at the Kendra, and students are encouraged to participate in their making and learn in the process.

8. The eligibility for extension of the hostel facilities depends, among other things, on the students’ participation/attendance in the above-mentioned activities.

1. All students are required to attend classes regularly in the main discipline. They must attend at least 75% of the classes for being allowed in the Bi-Annual and Annual examinations.

In the event that physical classes cannot be held due to Governmental restrictions on any account whatsoever, the classes will be held online and all students are required to regularly attend such classes from their homes and meet the minimum attendance criteria.

2. Students may apply for leave in advance and get it sanctioned by their teacher and the Principal. In case of an illness, applications must be supported by a medical certificate from a Registered Medical Practitioner.

3. All students are expected to use the library extensively. The annual examination will include 10% marks for the use of the library.

4. The students are required to be dressed appropriately in classrooms. Non-adherence to the dress code will render the student ineligible for the class.

5. Mobile phones should be switched off during classes, failing which they are liable to be confiscated for 24 hours. All Gurus will ensure adherence to this rule.

6. Other than the fees, students are prohibited from paying any amount towards the collection of money in class. Any such request/demand by any student or faculty member should be brought to the notice of the Principal immediately.

7. The continuity of a student in any course depends on the marks scored in bi-annual/annual exams. The decision of the Institution in this regard will be final.

8. Students must respect the musical instruments in their class and help in their care and maintenance. They will not take the instruments out of the classroom unless specifically permitted.
