for general operating support  
Chhandam Chitresh Das Dance Company produces traditional, innovative, and collaborative works of North Indian classical Kathak dance, recognized by its representation of both Hindu and Muslim culture. Through local performances, national and international touring, an arts education program that reaches 3,500 K-12 children, and the largest Indian classical dance school in North America, founder Pandit Chitresh Das and his organization strive to preserve a classical art form, both within the Bay Area’s South Asian population and across cultural groups. The organization has been growing both artistically and programmatically, and a renewal grant would support a focus on long-term sustainability and strengthening the school’s infrastructure.
