Center For Arts And Wellness - New Classes In The New Year!

Vandana Rao and Hema Iyengar



With the holidays upon us and New Year around the corner, we are all looking forward to creating cherished memories with friends and family; remembering the good times and leaving behind challenging ones. The Center for Arts and Wellness would like to take the opportunity and thank everyone for their support, motivation and love that has made this journey so far such a humbling and memorable experience.


The Center for Arts and Wellness (in Westborough) started as a simple idea at a holiday dinner table and has blossomed into a cornerstone of creative and performing arts for the larger Metro West Community. The Center opened its doors in October 2016 as a unique and humble concept of bringing art and health together by two local artists, Hema Iyengar and Vandana Rao. 2019 marked the 3-year anniversary of the Center and its wonderful journey from inception to a well-established focal point for art, cultural and wellness programs. To celebrate this important milestone the Center hosted its mid-year recital on December 14th. It was a pleasure to see the hard work and talent of its students with mesmerizing performances ranging from vocal, instrumental and various forms of dance. More than 80 students participated with breathtaking performance that lifted the holiday spirits and created an aura of divinity, trance and glee.


As the Center looks back at its achievements for this year, while also planning new resolutions and goals for the New Year. The Center for Arts and Wellness can be part of your art, fitness and wellness goals for 2020. 

For MUSIC, the Center now offers lessons in Carnatic Vocal and Western Flute along with existing classes in Mridangam, Guitar, Piano, Tabla, Hindustani Vocal, Saxophone, Bansuri Flute, Clarinet and Song Writing and Composition. 

For DANCE, they have introduced a new class in Odissi starting in January 2020 along with other genres such as Kathak, Bharatanatyam and Bollywood Dance.
