Performers Gallery

Besharam is a space to showcase emerging and established South Asian dance artists. We're looking for innovative performers, either trained in the classical dance forms of South Asia e.g. bharatnatyam, khattak etc., in Bollywood and Bhangra style dancing, and/or in Indo-fusion, jazz or hip-hop. Ultimately, we're looking for people with lots of energy and a fresh style. If you are a dancer or part of a dance troupe, and feel that you have what it takes to perform for our audience, then email us at besharam@hotmail.com.
