Our vision is that South Asian dance is a vital part of everyone’s creative expression. 

We inspire deeper connections with each other and our wider world through extraordinary South Asian dance.


open, connecting, caring, collaborative, bold

“We put care at the centre of everything that we do at Akademi. Caring deeply about dance, the people we work with and the artists and creatives who make work, we care about the planet and our future and we care that as many people as possible can participate and benefit from the joy of South Asian dance.”

Suba Subramaniam, Artistic Director
