As part of the World Dance Day celebrations on 29th April, Santosh Nair’s Sadhya in association with India Habitat Centre presented an extravaganza of traditional, classical and contemporary dance styles with over 100 dancers.

The venue for the performance was the The Plaza Steps at the India Habitat Center, Delhi. As the steps cascade down, they are lined with bushes and trees. They present different platforms at different levels to perform on, giving the artistes the advantage of stages.

Santosh Nair began his journey as a Kathakali dancer under the guidance of his father Kalamandalam Padmanabhan in the year 1986. He is also trained in Mayurbhanj Chhau under Guru Janmejoy Saibabu and in contemporary dance under Narendra Sharma of Bhoomika Creative Dance Center. In 1998 he started his own company Sadhya - a unit of performing arts which rests on the philosophy of tradition and innovation. It has now established itself as one of the leading contemporary Indian dance companies of the country.
