Nava Dance Theatre is a 501(c)3 registered non-profit organization.

Based in San Francisco, Nava Dance Theatre is in a unique position to present bharatanatyam to audiences who may not be familiar with the art form. By exploring the art form through collaborations with other bharatanatyam dancers, visual artists, musicians, and local dance makers, the company is able to share the power of bharatanatyam throughout the diaspora and beyond.

Nava’s programs are funded with support from the California Arts Council, East Bay Community Foundation, Zellerbach Family Foundation, CA$H Grants, Center for Cultural Innovation, Western Arts Alliance, City of Oakland Individual Artist Grants, and individual donors. Funds from donors go towards tours, workshops, studio rental, and new projects. For a full list of supporters, click here.
