Bhoomika Creative Dance Centre is a premiere national performing arts organization that has been in the forefront of infusing a new spirit in Indian dance since its inception in 1972. Initiated by a group of progressive artists, the centre evolved a dance company known for innovative and experimental choreography that has attracted critical attention in major festivals in India and abroad.
Core to success of Bhoomika has been the contributions of renowned choreographer, dancer and its founder-director Narendra Sharma who passed away in January 2008 after brief illness.
Mr. Sharma’s artistic lifespan covered a critical period in Indian cultural history from 1930’s onwards. Being taught by legendary dancer Uday Shankar at his Almora Center (1939-42), he began his career in pre-Independence days as part of the nationalist movement.
