Based in New Delhi, Gati Dance Forum is a pioneering arts initiative that works in the field of contemporary dance. Founded in 2007, in response to the glaring absence of opportunities and infrastructure for independent dance in India, Gati has consistently searched for avenues to create a sustainable environment for the development of contemporary dance practice in the country. Both conceived of and run by dance professionals, Gati Dance Forum is a model path-breaking community initiative. It is committed to a vibrant engagement with contemporary dance through opportunities for reflection, interrogation and innovation. In a span of seven years, its activities have grown from a monthly workshop between like-minded dancers into a body of pioneering and innovative projects that attempt to address areas as diverse as pedagogy, creation, research, outreach and arts advocacy and policy. Gati Dance Forum is registered under the Indian Trust Act.
