Classes & workshops

The students at Natya Tarangini are not merely trained in Kuchipudi dance, they are taught a way of living through dance. A path of beauty where students learn to look at life with a different perspective, a perspective of dance which combines one’s creative imagination with harsh realities. Through their minds they imagine and with their bodies they train. While dance teaches them values such as determination, sincerity, hard work, perseverance, team work, as gurus we consider ourselves a medium to pass on these values through dance to the young minds who come to us.
