The cultural wing of Bhushans’ Academy of Performing Arts & Visual Presentation, Mysuru will be presenting a unique festival for young budding talents titled ‘Udbhava Bhushana’ on August 6 at Kalamandir.
The event will be inaugurated by acclaimed dancer couple Badari Divya Bhushan and Dr Anjana Bhushan at 5:45 pm.
Bhushans Academy of Performing Arts and Visual Presentation was formally started by ‘Bhushans’ in 2005 in Mysuru, known for its rich art and culture. Both Bhushan and Anjana impart the knowledge of the divine art form of Bharatanatyam to the aspiring students and give them ample opportunity to exhibit their potentials and get noticed in the various group presentations which is very rare in the present day dance scenario.
The main motto of this academy is to spread the art to the new generation and help the younger crowd develop a liking towards the Indian art and culture. The dancer couple from Mysuru, keeping Bharatanatyam as base, have produced many fabulous contemporary pieces for presentation. Academy productions are manifestations of thought provoking, mythological as well as contemporary themes wherein each piece is a vibrant, scintillating presentation filled with energy and symmetry. Badari Divya Bhushan and Dr Anjana Bhushan have transformed many students from being stark beginners to able performers.
