Sunanda's Performing Arts Center
(SPARC) aims to provide lessons in pure Indian classical dance
forms. India is known for its artistic and cultural heritage,
and SPARC intends to carry forward this heritage by imparting
training and through depiction of the various dance forms.
SPARC is now in its 5th year of operation in the
USA. At SPARC, the rich tradition of Indian Classical Dance is
safely preserved, which will be evident to the performer and the
viewer, who experience the liberation and growth of
righteousness as man, by manifesting the glory of God. Indian
dance culture has been influenced by temple traditions and
thematically depends on the rich mythological tales of the
Hindus. Today, Indian dance forms have captured the global
attention in all the cultural vistas of the world.

institution has blossomed into a renowned institution. The
phenomenal strides achieved in these past twenty-six years is
testimony to the selfless efforts in teaching the art in its
purest form and dedication of the teacher in inculcating the
best in the disciple, with sincerity and integrity.
Today, Sunanda's Performing Arts Center is on the threshold of a
new phase in its growth, being designed as not merely a dance
school but an institute that imparts a comprehensive arts
education. Plans are under way to include classes in Vocal and
