From Our Editors
Called "admirably precise dancers" by the New York Times, Natya Dance Theatre has more than a few accomplishments beneath its collective belt. The classic Indian dancers have collaborated with Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, were the first company from the United States to appear at New York's World Music Institute, and are capable of dominating any and all Dance Dance Revolution marathons. They are six-time recipients of the Chicago Reader's "Critic's Choice" award and a 2004 recipient of the Paul Berger Arts Entrepreneurship Award from Columbia College Chicago. Besides their performances, Natya has been running a dance school for nearly 40 years, and maintains a touring company that performs across the world.
