Our Story

Since 2003, Mudra Dance Studio in Syosset, Long Island, has been teaching the ancient Indian Classical dance form of Bharatanatyam to students from both Nassau and Suffolk counties.  Since it’s inception we have staged several concerts on Long Island and New York City. Mudra’s students have participated in cultural programs throughout the Tristate area. Through the years we have supported a number of charitable causes by being a part of their fund raising initiatives.

As we entered our 10th year, we felt a growing need to integrate our passion for dance with a desire to give back to society. This was the inspiration behind The Mudra Foundation: Art for a Cause.  Mudra literally means “symbolic hand gesture” during dance. In its non-profit form, Mudra has come to symbolize “a helping hand” to well deserving causes.
