In 2008, Thresh embarked on a major educational initiative using technology to give users worldwide access to arts and education materials via the internet. Thresh’s multimedia arts educational projects are designed to offer an entirely new approach to teaching and analyzing movement and culture through the performing arts. Lesson plans for teachers, tasks and games for students and a message forum offer the opportunity for ongoing dialogue with a broader community through the performing arts and also create awareness of other disciplines through the arts.
The first in this series is Dancing for the Gods, a major interactive website introducing Bharatanatyam (Indian Classical Dance) to a global audience. The website can be accessed at www.dancingforthegods.org
