The founder and director of the academy, Smt. Bhairavi Kumar, began her formal training in the Institution of Pt Nikhil Gosh under the guidance of Smt. Shivani Pandya, a Ghanda Bhandan shagrid of Pt. Lacchu Maharaji of the Lucknow gharana. Bhairavi Kumar’s training continued under Smt. Uma Dogra, disciple of Pt. Durgalalji of the Jaipur gharana. She has performed in numerous countries including India, Africa, Canada, and throughout the US. Smt. Bhairavi Kumar has been teaching Kathak in and around Los Angeles for over twenty five years and has earned a distinguished reputation as a traditional and dedicated teacher-performer of Kathak amongst her colleagues and pupils.
The academy is dedicated to educate, research, and bring diversity to the community through innovating dance and performance. In addition to performances at numerous events and festivals, the Nrityodaya Kathak Academy organizes and produces a bi-annual dance production. The Nrityodaya Kathak Academy has had the honor to host the Legendary Pt Birju Maharji for his 75th anniversary tour, Concert of the Legend, as well as multiple workshops with the legend himself and his prestigious shagirds. The academy has recently had the privilege of a workshop with the Smt. Jayanti Malaji, shagird of the legendary Queen of Kathak Smt. Sitara Devi.

Rangashree Dances of India specializes in the classical dance of Bharatanatyam(sometimes Bharata Natyam or Bharat Natyam) and Indian folk dances, particularly those of Gujarat and Western India. We work to sustain the spirit of India’s dance traditions through authentic performances and educational efforts.
India’s classical and folk dances are a window into the rich traditions of an ancient culture. Exuberant and colorful, they are pleasing to the senses. Yet they are also ceremonial expressions of devotion that reveal a glimpse of India’s soul.
We hope that you will enjoy these dance traditions and discover deeper meaning in them.
Malathi Iyengar established Rangoli Foundation for Art & culture in 1985 and Rangoli Dance Company in 1992 to share performing and visual arts of India. The company features the vibrant south Indian dance form ‘Bharatanatyam’ through strong technique and story telling. Bharatanatyam is a classical Indian dance form that originated in the temples of South India.
Drawing from the myth and spirituality of south Indian heritage, Iyengar creates dance landscapes that dwell in both traditional and secular, and rhythm and stillness. The dances convey a sense of reverence & mystery, and are offered in the spirit of universal celebration.
