The School of “Bharathakala” was started in 2004 to promote Bharatanatyam, one of India’s oldest and most sacred classical dance forms and in the style of kalakshetra. The mission of the school is to impart this divine art and inculcate our culture and values in students. We train our students for high standard and dedication to the dance.
The school’s aim is to present Bharatanatyam dance as a cultured, highly skilled, and beautiful medium to express devotion to the Lord and wishes to bestow upon its students the essence of connecting the mind, body, and soul through learning and understanding this sacred art form.
Each student is assured individual attention and motivated to participate in the school’s dance productions and programs. “There is no other knowledge, no other learning, no other art, not even yoga or action that is not found in dance.
