Attainments of 2015 - 16
*Tulir Taney* (Academy of Dance, Art, Music & Choreography), situated at south Kolkata near Kasba Bijon Setu, is a dream of Nupur Mukherjee. She founded this institution twenty years back with only three students. Currently it has about three hundred students. Thus the once-formed small bud now blossomed into a big colorful
flower with its fragrance that perfumed its students, who spread the aroma to everywhere through their performing art-skills like dance, painting and music. Tulir Taney is also a boon to special need children. In a special wing, Nupur Mukherjee uses dance therapeutic techniques on special need children to improve their ability in social and physiological aspects. Such techniques increase mental discipline and self-control of a special child, enhance their co-ordination, memory-level, and help flourish their intrinsic aptitude. The polish these students thereby obtain, enable them to perform as good as the normal students. Inclusive dance education among the normal and differently-abled children is provided to meet the demand of modernstandard tutoring. Surprising performances of special children, perceived in the Tulir Taney conducted annual cultural programs over the past few years, prove the benefits of her unique techniques.
