This place is magic. It's outside of the city, so you need a cab to get there (which is cheap in Bangalore). you get a glimpse of traditional Hindu dance practice, precise movements, I couldn't stop watching them, so dedicated and focused. restaurant is great on site. Definitely a unique experience and insight into Indian culture.

This place I'ds perhaps the only place in India which has been set up on the lines of a true Gurukul - the students of classical dances who resides here with teachers are housed and live like a family . The village atmosphere and the vastness of the beautiful set up here is an experience in itself . The trees... More

I think this is the place where you can see some amazing odisi dance practice. The kind of professionalism is unmatchable. A must visit place for dance lovers and also can enjoy some nature and fresh air. For shutter bugs as mentioned in other reviews it could be disappointing. But it's also not fair to expect clicking when someone is... More

Nrityagram is situated very close to Bangalore but yet it is far away from the humdrum of the city life. It is nestled amongst the farms, the last remaining grasslands of Bangalore and lush green trees with hardly any civilization in sight. The drive was an absolute delight taking us through the verdant farms and cattle-blocked roads ;) and yes... More

This place is 30-40 kms away from bangalore. It is not a good idea to go as a group to enjoy holidays. Because it is a dance school , you have to maintain silence. Once you enter Nrithyagram ,you have to take 50 rs pass. You can watch odissi dance teaching class and photos taking is strictly prohibited inside class.... More

I was here a couple of weeks ago with a few friends. I must say this place is a retreat. The calm ambience and the green trails are to die form. It is a perfect weekend getaway. It is advisable to make a call to the place before you visit because they are shut at times. Also if you call... More

The Nrityagram Dance Village is situated in a remote part of Hessarghatta which probably deters many from visiting it. The place itself is quiet and serene. You can watch kids dance classes on Sundays which is quite an enjoyable experience. There is an entry fee of Rs 50 which is quite reasonable and photography is prohibited in all performances which...
