Welcome to the Ektaa
Center where we celebrate the traditional arts and culture of India. Over
the last two decades, Orange County, CA has grown into one of the most
diverse communities in the country. We have the opportunity to make this
one of the most vibrant and exciting representations of world cultures;
an opportunity to celebrate the differences and be a model for future generations;
an opportunity to provide the next generation a smorgasbord of cultural
experiences that help them grow into better human beings and good citizens
of the world. The first step to accomplish this is through creating awareness
and understanding through education and experiential learning.
Ektaa in Sanskrit
means oneness or unity. Ektaa Center is committed to create
an awareness and understanding of the traditional arts of India,
using diverse medium such as dance, music, theater and other related arts
to help build better communities in Southern California. The Ektaa Center
strives to foster cross-cultural exchange in this multi ethnic community.
We believe education and knowledge of cultures creates better communities.
At the same time, we strive to preserve the ancient arts of India through
education, community involvement and sponsorship of the performing arts.
We hope you enjoy the experiences we provide through our people and programs.
