A dance village located near Hesarghatta in rural Karnataka, Nrityagram was conceptualized by renowned Odissi dancer Protima Bedi in 1990. Situated at a distance of only 35 kilometres from Bangalore, Nrityagram is "a community of dancers in a forsaken place amidst nature" in Protima Gauri's own words. Apart from the exceptional dance school, other offerings of this place is the beautifully made village which consists of mud houses, greenery and open spaces to give a calm and serene feeling to its visitors and students.
It is the first modern residential school in India and only imparts education, both theory and practical, on the subjects of various Indian classical dance forms. Nrityagram is a community which takes the form of a dance village. A visit to Nrityagram would also give you the chance to explore the Hessarghatta Reservoir which lies five kilometres away from the dance village.
Training in several Indian classical dance forms like that of Bharatnatyam, Mohiniattam, Kathak, Odissi, Kathakali, Manipuri and Kuchipudi is offered here. Nrityagram was designed by Gerard da Cunha, who was an immensely famous Indian architect. It follows the old Indian student - teacher tradition. Nrityagram also sends dance troupes to perform on a global level and has been doing this since the year 1996.
