Nrityangan Academy of Fine Arts is placed in the heart of suburban Mumbai, at Santacruz.
Nrityangan literally means Nritya Ka Aangan, ie An arena of dance. The academy
exclusively imparts training in the Bharatanatyam style of Indian classical dance exploring
the essence of the Kalakshetra dance style along with few traces from the Tanjavur style.
Nrityangan Academy of Fine Arts was founded in the year 1992 with the solemn objective of
inculcating the spirit of rich culture and heritage of India through the artistic form of dance.
In the ocean of talent, creativity and aesthetics, it is a small step taken by Anjana Dongre
towards the preservation of values that personify the classical dance form. The core value of
the academy has been to nurture and sculpt students to understand the nuances of dance
which go beyond performance to that of focus, self-discipline and internal strength.
What makes us bleed less in war, is the amount of sweat we put in peace time. Holding this true, we hold utmost importance to our practice sessions and our regular classes. The demand for sincerity and discipline in these sessions is evident as you get a sneak-a-peak into our practices.
We bestow immense honor on our students who have completed their Arangetram. For us it is the first stage to establish one as a defined Dancer, with qualities and attributes well tested over years of training.
