Using the performing arts as a tool for conversation and exchange, Taalim offers a variety of educational programming for all communities to learn and experience Indian culture and come to recognize our shared human experience. Our professional and experienced artists and teachers conduct workshops, lecture-demonstrations, assemblies, and residencies for K-12, colleges and universities, community events, and more.
Taalim’s educational programs are customizable to curriculums, and audience demographics.
In order to promote a better understanding of Indian art and culture, we
conduct fun and educational assemblies, workshops, lectures, and
demonstrations for K-12 in schools.
Taalim’s in-school programs use Indian music and/or dance specifically catered to the curriculum and age group. Our K-12 programs address the need for culturally specific arts programming within a school environment and offers reinforcement of the core curriculum.

Our students thoroughly enjoyed learning about the tablas and Indian rhythms. The presenters were wonderful with the children and helped them realize that Indian drumming is accessible to every person, regardless of cultural knowledge and background. The interaction during the assembly was not only fun, but also educational for our students.
