Mission Statement

Evergreen Balvihar is a non-profit educational organization that promotes cultural exchange and understanding. Our programs emphasize multigenerational and multicultural collaborations encouraging participants to find rewards in different forms of creativity. We bring artists from different cultures together in a supportive environment where they can get to know each other through the language of art. At the core of our program is the belief that interaction between Indian and non-Indian artists, students and participants enriches the creativity of both groups. Evergreen Balvihar is the first South San Jose organization with the unique focus of offering classes in several Indian fine arts and languages under a single roof, intended mainly for children between 5 and 14 years of age. Our objective is to offer a platform for children of all ethnicities to showcase their talents.



We have divided our activities in to three main categories as follows:

Arts: In this category we teach several Indian classical dance forms, folk dance forms, classical music and folk/film music. Currently, we are offering classes in Kuchipudi dance and Bharathanatyam dance (traditional and authentic classical dance forms from southern India), Folk dances (several folk forms from all over India), Carnatic vocal (an authentic and traditional classical music from southern India) and Folk/music.

Languages:In this category we teach Indian languages as each state of India has a local language.
Currently, we are offering Telugu (Andhra Pradesh state language) and Hindi (National language).

Public performances: Showcasing the talent is one of the main objectives of this organization there by helping children in improving their self-confidence, inter-personal skills and teamwork. We intend to use these programs to promote understanding and harmony among diverse cultures and at the same time give the opportunity to children to broaden their intellectual horizons, improve teamwork and build their self-confidence.

These after-school cultural enrichment program is offerted to the children on both weekdays and weekends.
