Description

At Nrityagram dance village, dance is a way of life. The founder, Protima Gauri, an exquisite Odissi dancer herself, converted ten acres of farmland into an ideal setting for the study, practice and teaching of classical dance. As knowledge passes from guru to disciple, the continuity of the classical arts is ensured. The Nrityagram Dance Ensemble is regarded as one of the foremost dance companies in India. Since 1996, the year of their life-changing New York debut, they have toured the US annually and performed in Denmark, Portugal, the Middle-east, Singapore, Japan, and more.
