A Banyan Tree Initiative set up to expose young minds to the rich and intangible heritage of art and culture

We aim to expose students to diverse cultures & their rich traditions through joyous, memorable experiences and enable them to explore deeply what it means to be a performing artiste.

Tender Roots Academy of Performing Arts is a unique project specially conceptualized to introduce children to the vast treasure of performing arts from India and the World amongst the younger generation.

Apart from creating expanding minds through deep engagement with cultures from all parts of the globe, this project will inculcate in the minds of the children, the much-needed understanding of their own culture as future citizens of India. They will start valuing and appreciating our rich heritage and the wide range of performing arts, some of which are rare and almost extinct.


Rare international artistes visit schools and interact with students in fun, informative sessions.


Professional, informative yet entertaining programs that introduce young children to rare gems of living traditions from around the country and the world.
