Surely a unique experience. Has given India some great talent in Odishi. But it's only questionable how long the set up will be there in the long run. The people are very dedicated and you can see them perform and practice all day. I think out of some 7 forms of dance that was originally planned to be taught only... More

Far from city's hustle and bustle, this place offer you peace of mind and satisfies your love for classical dance. Lot of greenery, beautiful wall arts, classical odissi dancers, and lots more....Good place for photography. You are not allowed to take photos when odissi dancers perform but you can definitely capture it in your eyes as memories for lifetime. Interactions... More

Prior to my visit here, i have had little exposure to dance of any sorts, cultural or modern. This visit has certainly been worth while. It has exposed to me to the art of dancing and how complex and exhausting it is. Without a doubt it has made me appreciate the talents and dedications of the dancers. We were lucky... More

A must visit for those who love Indian classical dance. This center of learning is unique, as it still follows the time tested "gurukul parampara". There is no better way to promote classical dance than opening up the school to public, as once can get a transparent view of what's happening inside this organization. A credit very few organizations can... More

I have visited Nrityagram three times in last couple of years and every single time it takes me to a world very different and far from busy city life. Time slows down to the rhythm of Indian classical music and dancing feet! A very beautiful experience for anybody with love for dance and music. The property is a treasure not... More

Nrityagram, combined with Taj Kuteer... makes for a good outing on a weekend. Get to see the influence of Kelucharan Mohapatra & Protima Bedi all over Nrityagram, where you have some world class Odissi dancers... in the gurukul tradition... you can attend their performances with prior confirmation on time/attendance. The place is very serene, and has beautiful green environs... Taj... More

We spent a few intense hours at Nrityagram watching living greats in Odissi rehearse, teach, and go about their daily lives. We met the new generation of students, the musicians, and administrators who all make Nrityagram the Odissi gurukul it is.

This is a unique concept ! Protima Bedi's dream ... The focus is on Gurukul type teaching. The outreach to fresh talent is inspired. Partly thru classes for village children from whom credible international talent has been found. And by visit to the city for teaching. The directors are quietly focused. And respectful of the value of being independent and... More
