In March 1985, Natya Sangama, choreographed and directed by dance tutors Miss Uma Rajan and Miss Prabha Rao, was presented at the Cultural Theatre. A recital of its own students and graduates, about 50 dancers took part in the 13 items of Bharatanatyam, Kathak and Manipuri classical dance forms and folk forms like Kolkari.
It was a need for more performances by Indian local artists that prompted SIFAS to present the show. Mr. Sachithananthan, Vice President and Programming Chairman hoped that SIFAS would continue to give performances by its own students of dance and music.
