Our Mission

The fundamental mission of Taal is to promote awareness of South Asian dance, thereby
promoting awareness of both Indian culture and the arts. Our organization serves to establish
a forum for South Asian dance, open to all members of the Barnard/Columbia community.

What We Do

Taal choreographs and dances over ten different styles of classical and modern dance, including Bharatanayam, Kuchipudi, Kathak, Odissi, Manipuri, Mohini Attam, modern, ballet, and more. Our team participates in various competitions and performance showcases within New York City as well as other states in the country.


Every year, Taal organizes an inter-collegiate charity dance showcase - Naach Nation. Our longest standing tradition, Naach Nation, provides a platform for various performance groups to come together to celebrate fusion dance choreography and South Asian culture, as well as to give back to the community.
