The School


Kalanidhi has had a strong reputation for its dance education for 20 years. We aim to promote high quality Kuchipudi dance in the Washington Metropolitan area in the following ways:

  • Through a thorough understanding of the dance vocabulary and rigorous training
  • By leveraging the Iyengar school of Yoga’s emphasis on body alignment and strength building to perfect the dance technique, and to protect the body from injury.
  • By bringing dance experts from India for Summer classes
  • Conducting workshops by outstanding dance professionals
  • Creating opportunities for our students to meet with visiting and established artists to share their performance histories
  • By creating performance opportunities for our dance students so they build experience and confidence in performance
