Bharatanatyam Dance Classes in Pune



Classical Dance is an Art form that expresses the Individual & the Universe as a Whole.


Nrityanjali is a Pune based Bharatnatyam Institute with its origins in Kolkata. Having started out in a garage with a few students, it rapidly grew to huge proportions imparting training in Bharatnatyam to more than 200 students at a time.

More than 150 of Nrityanjali’s students have performed their Arangetrams in the last 30 years. Students are rigorously trained in all the nuances of Bharatnatyam such as Bhavam, Abhinayam and Talam. Practical training is accompanied by a thorough grounding in the theory of Bharatnatyam. Thanks to the strong foundation, Nrityanjali’s students regularly appear for examinations conducted by Tilak Maharashtra Vidyapeeth and Akhil Bhartiya Gandharva Mahavidyalaya and perform very well.

Nrityanjali’s students participate in all the eminent dance competitions such as Mood Indigo, Kalyani Karandak, etc. and are usually the winners of all top prizes.
