Greetings Poja and Welcome!

There are many dance schools in all parts of India and Odissi is a popular dance to study - probably because it is one of the most beautiful.

You didn't say where you are going. Delhi? Mumbai? Orissa??

You can also look here

or even here

Be well,
Nautch

If you are going to be around mumbai, Jhelum Pranjape teaches Odissi classes every day in her school called Smitalay Dance Academy - she is a senior diciple of the late Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra. Here is a link to her website: http://www.smitalay.com/training.htm

My girlfriend studies with Guru Sri Vishnu Tattva Das in San Anselmo, California, you should look at the website, it's very nice:

My girlfriend studied at Smitalay Dance Academy 2 years ago and she highly recommends that you check it out, Jhelum is an excellent teacher with a fun personality.

I appreciate your view of art . I ahve no idea about the programme , but i want to share my view . Today, though Odissi dance has stepped out of the temple into mainstream society, it continues to inspire and awaken beauty and grace in the hearts of artists and spectators alike. In increasing numbers it is brought to life through dedication and devoted work, allowing it to evolve and thrive as it passes from teacher to student, building a future with ancient history and culture into the new millenium.
