Baithak@Classes is Baithak Foundation’s flagship program. In this program, we start with curating concerts and interactive sessions for the students. The art forms that we include in this program are a mix of vocal (Hindustani, Dhrupad and Carnatic), instruments (Sitar, Sarod, Sarangi, Santoor etc.) and dance forms (Kathak, Bharatnatyam and Odissi).
Kids sign up voluntarily for the concerts. Each concert is followed by interaction with artists. Each concert has an element of participation where kids also sing/join the artists to understand music better.
In the second phase of this program, we introduce workshops for the various art forms along with the concerts. After successful execution for 2 years, this program is matured into Baithak Taalim, another program of Baithak Foundation where Baithak Fellows visit the school monthly and teach a specific art form to a batch of students.
How long each concert is?
Each concert is 60 to 90 minutes long.
Baithak team takes care of all logistics in eluding sound system.
Since we try to work in an intimate setting, we prefer classrooms over auditorium for organising concerts.
For better interaction and engagement, we cap the number of students per concert to 50 or max 60.
For municipal schools or schools catering to underprivileged kids, this program is run free of cost. If you are a for profit school, please get in touch with us for a costing.
