Silambam Houston was founded in 2002 by Dr. Lavanya Rajagopalan, for the promotion and development of the arts, to impart artistic education, and promote young talent in the performing arts.


We seek to increase the appreciation and understanding of Indian artistic traditions across cultural boundaries, through comprehensive arts education, outreach, and exceptional arts programming, and by creating opportunities for young artistes to develop, perform, and collaborate.


Our community of Board members, faculty, staff, and supporters all share the Silambam values of artistic integrity in exploration, the pursuit of excellence, and meaningful contribution to community. All of our programming and activities are rooted in these core values.
