Kalanidhi has had a strong reputation for its dance education for 30 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.
Dedicated & Driven
We provide a warm and collaborative space to our wonderful community of students, where they are able to freely express themselves through dance. We celebrate our students and work hard to help them reach their full potential as dancers.
