In Protima Gauri's own words, "it is a community of dancers in a forsaken place amidst nature. A place where nothing exists, except dance. A place where you breathe, eat, sleep, dream, talk, imagine - dance. A place where all the five senses can be refined to perfection. A place where dancers drop negative qualities such as jealousy, small-mindedness, greed and malice to embrace their colleagues as sisters and support each other in their journey towards becoming dancers of merit". Apart from the exceptional dance, other offerings of this place is the beautifully made village - made up of mud houses, greenery and open spaces gives a pleasing feeling to the visitors and habitants alike. A visit to Nrityagram would also give you the chance to explore the Hessarghatta Reservoir. It lies five kilometers away from the dance village.
