What we do

Bhaskar’s Arts Academy steadfastly believes in contributing to the vibrant arts scene in Singapore. Annually, the Academy performs four to five seasons and continues to exhilarate audiences with its unique repertoires.

Aside from its performances, the Academy provides a ready platform for talented young artistes and believes in developing potentials and nurturing passion through its teaching wing Nrityalaya Aesthetics Society. From Nrityalaya, dancers with potential are carefully selected to join BAA’s Core Dancers’ Programme. The Programme enables us to train young dancers through a holistic training programme and groom them for the Academy’s performances. Through this, the dancers gain valuable stage exposure as well as the opportunity to train under our choreographers as well as other external choreographers. Similarly, talented music students from Nrityalaya are handpicked to be part of BAA’s youth orchestra Swathi, where they receive advance training as well as numerous performance opportunities.

The Academy has also forayed into other arts-related fields. Among its many ventures, it boasts its own Kathakali troupe, the only one of its kind in the world outside India. A Therukkoothu section is currently being developed too. A strong believer of reaching out to the community, the Academy continues to work with several organisations to bring the Arts to those who may otherwise not have the opportunity.
