"Dance is the poetry of movement, the canvas of emotion, and the masterpiece of the soul, where every step tells a story and every leap unlocks a universe of possibility."

~ Smt. Arundhati Singha John


About Us

Nritta Dhyana is an institution committed to educating students in the field of Indian classical dance.

Students continuing their education in dance are taught nattuvangam, dance theory, abhinaya/expression classes as part of their syllabus and the opportunity to learn via special workshops. Many graduates from our school go on further to become dance teachers, performers and even have their own schools.
