“I dream of building a community of dancers in a forsaken place amidst nature. A place where nothing exists, except dance. A place where you breathe, eat, sleep, dream, talk, imagine - dance.

A place where all the five senses can be refined to perfection. A place where dancers drop negative qualities such as jealousy, small-mindedness, greed and malice to embrace their colleagues as sisters and support each other in their journey towards becoming dancers of merit.

A place called Nrityagram.”

Protima Gauri

We aspire to be a dynamic artistic community that practices and upholds the holistic traditions associated with the classical arts of India.

A place that nurtures artistic growth and exchange, and enables deeper connections between people and art, beyond political, social and cultural differences.


To nurture dance professionals through the gurukul system, perform on a global stage and enrich community through outreach.
