Guru in Residence Series

Online Classes By RFPA

Art stays relevant only when it becomes easily accessible and enjoyable. But for some, the performing arts are not just a tool for entertainment, but a viable career option. Being a music and dance organisation, RFPA does not want to give a stage to just expert performing artists, but also students!

Being a country of the youth, there are countless budding minds looking to take the first step towards becoming artists. We believe shiksha should not become a hurdle for these rough-cut diamonds, but rather a sacred pathway to reaching their dreams.

In that vein, RFPA has established its Guru in Residence Series (online classes for music and dance). It is a focused initiative started with the intention of training and shaping young students who have a passion for getting into the performing arts.

Key Associations of RFPA

Key Associations of RFPA

Performing Arts organisations are facing a challenge to keep people’s interest in Indian classical arts, especially for the faction of youth in our country.

Towards that goal, we have joined hands with other like-minded people and organisations, so we can curate and produce quality classical music and dance events, support emerging artists, and maintain the enthusiasm around our artistic heritage.

Some of our key associations partner up with us for physical and online events, some of them assist emerging artists through our digital platform, while still  others have jointly hosted global talent hunts to scout for uncut gems.

RFPA puts artists on the forefront, and our key associations help us take steps towards achieving out objectives.
