Mrs. Usha Gupta of Usha Kala Niketan never needs an introduction to the artistic community of Alberta. She is the first South Asian female recipient of the prestigious Hall of Fame Award in the year 2016 from the City of Edmonton. Her contributions to the community of fine arts speaks volumes. She has been a pioneer in brining South Asian music and dance to the community of Alberta along with several other community organizations.
Last year, we had the honour of having Mrs. Gupta as a part of our Panel Discussion along with Brian Webb (Director, Briann Webb Dance School) and Aastha Khajuria (recipent of the Edmonton Arts Council Award). She also performed a solo on that day for our audience as a senior Guru of Kathak.
This year, we are very pleased to inform that Sanskriti will be joining hands with Usha Kala Niketan in Co-Sponsoring the dance venue for all the workshops during the conference. Sanskriti thanks Mrs.Gupta for always promoting quality training platforms and her willingness to work collaboratively with artists across the globe. Both the years, she had readily accepted our invitation in supporting the cause. Sanskriti salutes her passion for promoting Classical Fine Arts in Alberta.
