the Jersey project  
A project delivering Indian dance to Jersey schools

Jersey Inter-Cultural dialogue

2007: The offer for this tour came as a result of one of the teachers suddenly discovering our website. With the help of Kalithasan Chandrasegaram, we delivered Indian dance workshops in a number of Jersey schools. On each of the four days the host school invited classes of students from other nearby schools. The tour was a great success.

2008: Following the success of their previous tour of Jersey, Bisakha Sarker and Kali Dass were invited by Yasmin Taybout to deliver another week-long education project. The work concentrated on teacher training so that local teachers were enabled to continue the work to promote cultural diversity. This programme involved over 100 teachers from 22 primary schools.

Each of the training sessions included an introduction to the basics of Indian dance and storyletting for education, familiarisation with the worksheets and a practical session. In the practical sessions the teachers observed us working with the children, and received some hands-on training.

One of these sessions was exclusively focussed on the training of parent mentors.

In addition Jersey Arts centre invited Chaturangan to run two workshops open to the public.
