“Menaka Thakkar first came to Canada from India in 1972 as a visiting performing artist. She stayed to become one of Canada’s most influential dancers, choreographers, artistic directors, institution builders and teachers. Thakkar, through Indian classical dance, was instrumental in laying the groundwork for multiculturalism in the arts.”
Paula Citron, The Globe and Mail”.

Menaka Thakkar was named a 2013 laureate of the prestigious Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards (GGPAA) for Lifetime Artistic Achievement and was the 2012 Canada Council Walter Carsen Prize recipient for Excellence in the Performing Arts. The evening begins with a catered reception followed by live performances of excerpts from Menaka’s landmark choreographic works and those created by former company dancers.
