Young Artist Academy
To be an artist is to be a light, a force of creativity, and a conduit for the human spirit.
The world needs more artists.
That is why The Leela Institute created the Young Artist Academy.
At Leela's Young Artist Academy we mold the minds and hearts of talented and dedicated young individuals through immersion in Kathak dance and Hindustani classical music. The Young Artist Academy curriculum is grounded in the teaching philosophy and pedagogy of Kathak visionary and master, Pt. Chitresh Das. Under the artistic direction of Rina Mehta, Leela's Young Artist Academy apprentices develop into powerful artists, effectors of change, humanitarians and leaders.
