Dance for life!
Kalanjali: Dances Of India
At Kalanjali: Dances Of India we believe that dance has the power to promote a healthy self-image and enhance essential life skills that go beyond those acquired in our dance classes. We aim to teach the most authentic classical form of Bharatanatyam as we were taught in India, and also to impress upon our students a love for dance, and an understanding of its antiquity, scientifically evolved details and inherent beauty. Let them dance well, and let them become ambassadors of a cultural wealth reaching back thousands of years.
We share the dreams of our Guru Rukmini Devi Arundale who founded Kalakshetra College of Fine Arts more than 70 years ago, to preserve the then-threatened performing arts that had survived in the temples for millennia before the British overwhelmed India and tried to snuff the ancient voices. Through Kalanjali we strive to reach across all boundaries, both within our own multi-faceted Indian culture, and beyond the limits of any division. Founded on the belief that dance can positively impact anyone’s life regardless of age or skill level, Kalanjali provides authentic training in a friendly atmosphere, where both teacher and student share the challenges of the journey.
Join Kalanjali from first grade through high school and become a real dancer. Spend some time with us and be a learned member of the audience. Art has no limit!
