Being one of the pioneers in the field, Nritya Shakti provides a holistic education environment with a keen focus on growth, and refining the skills of every individual. Apart from our extensive programme, students are encouraged and trained to participate in events, jams, battles and performances that we host at the studio.

Our aim is to nurture not just technical skills but appreciation for the art forms. 

 

Rasā - The Stage, is our platform that explores modes of creating sustainable performances in the city. A canvas, where artists can get together, ideate and perform.

I am here for the love of dance. 

Nritya Shakti is more than a workspace for me. 

From meeting and communicating with dance enthusiasts to managing the studio, it's a process altogether. A process which makes me a better artist.

I want to be a voice of Nritya Shakti and add more cultural values and build a holistic place for dancers to learn.

Being an artist myself, I have made sure my process is dynamic. Nritya Shakti is a place that compliments this process of mine.

I witness such positive energy and come across inspiring students that help me become a better version of myself. 
I’m a firm believer of giving something back to my community. 
I feel lucky that Nritya Shakti given me the opportunity to share my values with the students and help the community grow.

Program Coordinator: Rasā -The Stage

I love curating events. The joy and satisfaction on an artist's face while they are performing is heartwarming to me.

There aren't many spaces in Mumbai where artists can be themselves and share their creations with an audience, and I am grateful to be a part of their journey through Rasā.

Caretaker

ITP Student Showcases are my favorite. I get to see new and fresh performances. Seeing the students practice for three months around the studio and finally be on stage, fills me with happiness. 

Working at Nritya Shakti doesn't feel like a job to me. I feel like I'm at home.

I love the atmosphere in the studio, I think it's beautiful and pleasant to be in. Every day is different and exciting, and I love being around the students and their parents.

The team is great and it's fun to work with everyone. Time flies by when I'm working here.
