Future Aims
‘Udayan’ which has been following the ideals of Uday Shankar and Amala Shankar over the last 24 years under the able guidance of Mamata Shankar, with a team of sincere and dedicated group of teachers, have now embarked on having a building of their own instead of the rented premises with their never ending clauses and restrictions.
A 10 katha plot of land has been purchased by the institution from KMDA at 318/C, Prantik Palli, Calcutta – 700107, at Rajdanga near the ‘ACROPOLIS’ complex besides the Kasba connector for this purpose.
Messrs.Dulal Mukherjee & Associates the leading architect firm of our country have been kind enough to design a G+5 building for our institution on this plot.
The estimated cost of the building is Rs.4 Crores.
The foundation stone for the ‘Udayan Performing Arts Centre’ was laid by Smt.Amala Shankar on May 7,2008, in the presence of several dignitaries,students and staff of the institution.
The construction job has been entrusted with Mssrs.Janardan Construction Ltd. Of Calcutta,who have begun their job on September 30,2008.
We have the following dreams for the Performing Arts Centre :

It is our aim to inform the future generations the contributions of this legendary dancer,choreographer,painter,magician in the field of performing arts, not only in India but all over the world.
