Centre Closed, but Movement Continues

As a precautionary measure against the COVID-19 global outbreak, all our classes and programs at Attakkalari are currently suspended until further notice. We are eagerly awaiting to fill up up our studios with dance, music and movers again but until then we request everyone to stay indoors and stay safe.

While we are all under a lockdown due to the global COVID-19 outbreak, let us still find ways to come together and move together. Our centre remains closed until further notice, however, we are doing our best to bring our expertise to you virtually. Join us everyday until March 31st on Facebook (6pm) and Instagram (6.30pm) for live movement sessions that are completely free of cost! All you need is comfortable clothing and a little bit of space within your own homes. Let our faculty guide you through contemporary movement, yoga and functional fitness.

We will soon be launching specialized online classes. If you would like to sign up, please call or email us at +91-96066-00937 / activities@attakkalari.org.

CHAt
CommunityHours@Attakkalari

Attakkalari welcomes all budding artists to use Attakkalari’s studio space for FREE at special community hours. With this new campaign, we aim to cultivate more affordable workspaces to ensure that artists continue to generate creative energy in communities. Lack of studio space or affordability adversely impacts the performance and career growth of many artists. With CHAt@Attakkalari, the main idea is to provide a boost to artists who are just starting out.

Apply for CHAt@Attakkalari here.
