|Shri Laxmi Narayan Nrityashram Sanstha|
|Shri Laxmi Narayan Nrityashram Sanstha, founded in 1995, has as its purpose to conserve and promote traditional arts from the north of India, through organizing shows, classes and music, dance and singing workshops.
The sanstha takes its name from a great master of Indian music and Kathak traditional dance. Known throughout the country, he practiced his art until 1972. It was his family, who have been passing on the art form for 8 generations from father to son, that decided to found the association.
One of the principal objectives of the members of SLNN is to create in Rajasthan traditional arts schools, with the goal of transmitting their cultural and artistic knowledge to those in India who wish to learn it, including those less fortunate who could benefit greatly from the teaching. The assocation has already created such a school in Jaipur, Gurukul, attended by students from all social classes.
Since its creation, the SLNN has organized a number of artistic events and activities across the world, allowing for intercultural exchanges between India and the rest of the world. In addition, each year the association organizes trips and workshops in India in order to share with as many people as possible the traditions and ancestral arts from the country (like yoga, music, and Kathak dance) under the teaching of great masters, such as Girdhari Maharaj – son of Shri Laxmi Narayan.
