Janaki’s Kathak Classes

“Dance is the hidden language of the soul. It is the poetic baring of the soul through motion.” In the month of November, we had the pleasure of having Janaki Mehta visit our school. She is a professional Kathak Dancer and has been a long time friend and supporter of FFLV. This year she sponsored widow’s feast and ice-creams for our school children. She also gave dance classes to Mansi, our ex-student and now a Kathak Dance Teacher here at FFLV. Mansi is very grateful to Janaki and is all set to teach her new dance to the other girls. We thank Janaki for her service at FFLV this year. She has a big heart and we are proud of her. We look forward for her next visit.

The girls also learned how they could use old fabrics to make beautiful dresses for their dolls. It was a fun session and the girls were overjoyed. Now they have their very own handmade dolls. We thank Sita for her act of love & kindness and the heart she put into this workshop to bring happiness to these young girls. Thank you for your […]

Dance of Empowerment

On 25th October, 2017 FFLV had its annual festival- Kartik Utsav 2017. The Sandipani Muni School children performed dances and displayed their martial arts skills and Yoga. We had a huge audience who awaited this festival and they were as excited as the children were. A lot of kids got the opportunity to show their talent which boosted their self-confidence. Our main focus however is always to use this as an opportunity to spread awareness about empowerment of women through dances and plays.  Here are the links to the videos of the performances: The Spirit of Durga Anti Dowry Campaign Dance of Liberation
