OUTREACH EVENTS:

India Fine Arts has been making a conscious and concerted effort to serve the needs of the underserved communities

The art of “Touch and Feel’ technique is widely used in India to teach the blind and visually impaired persons to teach dancing. The blind dancer follows the dance movements by touching and feeling the hands and legs of the dancer and then dance to the lyrics. Several workshops have been done for the Texas School for the blind and visually impaired to teach them to do a ballet. A blind dancing group was sponsored from Bangalore to do a ballet for them.

The “raga’ based Indian music has some therapeutic effects to alleviate depression, stress and other physical and mental ailments. This musical therapy is particularly important for seniors to lift them from loneliness and depression and create mental happiness. Several workshops have been done at Austin Groups for the Elderly to teach yoga based exercises with musical therapy.

IFA is also promoting radio music shows for the emotionally challenged people like Breaking the Boundaries, and Motional music.
