Peaceful place in Bangalore

Nrityagram is a school of dance (gurukul-based). It is very quiet and peaceful with beautiful atmosphere. 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. Even though what we saw was 'practice' dance sessions, it seemed so professional. The campus has these houses for students to stay there and learn dance for several months . The architecture is marvellous. The campus is serene, the way it was envisioned. A cluster of several huts forming the hostel, dining area, guest rooms etc. I will suggest everyone to visit this Heritage place, it will be an amazing experience.

Set up in 1990, the art school is an initiative of a famous Odissi danseuse, Protima Gauri. The village is established over an area of 10-acre land, which was leased by the Government of Karnataka. The village is designed and decorated by a well known architect, Gerard da Cunha. The school imparts education for Indian literature, mythology, poetry, aesthetics, philosophy of dance and music, spiritual thoughts and theory of dance.

The modern village features beautifully carved mud buildings that are dotted with green cover and groves. An annual festival, known as Vasantahabba, is held every spring in Nrityagram.
