Drishti was founded in 2008 with an aim to provide quality training in South Asian Classical dance style especially Kathak whilst providing a professional environment, to produce high quality dance work. Drishti is committed to create environment that nurtures excellence and innovation.
Since then Drishti Dance has worked tirelessly not only to provide platform for local dancers to experience the dance form in its original form but also to maintain their skills through public facing performances.
Drishti firmly believes that a strong foundation for future excellence and quality performances will be built within the region, only through, creating a local Knowledge base and synergies between the individuals.
Where the community centre came from?
The centre was built at the end of the 19th century as the Church Institute for St. Barnabas.
Cranham Street used to be a blot on the city
Before Grantham House was built, the site became notoriously derelict, making Cranham Street according to the local press a ‘blot on the city’ – wrecked by local children, and a refuge for rats and for ‘layabouts sleeping off the drink’ who were repeatedly evicted by the police.
