Eyakkam Dance Company is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit dance company based in Dallas-Fort Worth, and registered in the State of Texas.
Eyakkam is a dance company based in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex area. Primarily focusing on Bharatanatyam, we strive to offer the best quality of art. Bharatanatyam is an Indian classical dance whose written evidence dates back to at least the 2nd century BCE. Each of our company dancers have over 25 years of dance experience, and are active performers, teachers, and researchers.
The word eyakkam in the Indian Classical Language Tamil means movement, which could refer to physical movement, musical movement, movement for a cause (revolution), or to move others. In addition to practicing, performing, and teaching Bharatanatyam and activities surrounding Bharatanatyam such as yoga, strengthening and flexibility for people of all ages, we use Bharatanatyam to connect at a deeper level with the audience and engage in current issues surrounding the human condition.
