Celebrate Dakshina’s 10th Season With Us!
Be a part of our exciting 10th anniversary celebrations in 2013-2014
Now that 2012 is almost behind us, you may be wondering what we are up to. Can you believe it? Dakshina is looking ahead to its 10th anniversary season in 2013-2014. We have many exciting programs in the works including a stellar Fall Festival at one of the premiere institutions in Washington DC. The 2013 festival will have a wider scope of programming with emerging and established artists coming together in DC. Help us make our 10th year the building block for another decade of service and excellence through dance.
Dakshina is also excited to announce our 5th grant award from the National Endowment for the Arts for the reconstruction of Anna Sokolow’s master works. This is Dakshina’s 5th award in the company’s 9 year history. Stay tuned to find out more about our exciting projects in our Modern Dance, Bharata Natyam and signature style as part of our 10th anniversary celebrations.
Following the grant award, the National Endowment for the Arts interviewed Daniel about his approach and vision. Please take a moment to read through the NEA interview and Daniel’s thoughts on dance and Dakshina. Read the full interview here.

Can We Count On Your Support in 2013?
In 2012, Dakshina’s performances reached close to 5000 people. Dakshina’s Unique Adult Outreach Program provided free tickets to over 400 underprivileged adults through our work with local partners such as (SOME) So Others May Eat, Christ House, Martha’s Table and Miriam’s Kitchen. Our partnership with Class Acts Arts will bring the joy of dance to 25 schools and community organizations this season!
Your support made this growth possible. How? Every dollar you donated went directly towards our artistic projects and outreach programming. Dakshina is currently run entirely by volunteers, with zero dollars going towards administrative costs.
