About Akademi South Asian Dance UK

Akademi has led the way in bringing South Asian dance to mainstream attention since 1979.

Approaching our 40th anniversary, we are embarking on an ambitious programme of strategic development
that will see us enhance our position as the UK’s leading producer of South Asian dance, build strong talent pathways for the next generation of dancers and choreographers and place inspirational learning and participation programmes at the heart of our work.

Our artistic outlook is progressive, inquisitive, and truly diverse. We aim to challenge public perceptions and stereotypes of Indian dance through risk-taking creativity.

We are passionate about taking our work to disadvantaged communities and those who may never have experienced live dance performance. We also serve the growing South Asian community in London – the capital’s second largest minority population – offering meaningful connection with Indian cultural traditions in a cosmopolitan British context.
