Rooted in the tradition of Kathak, Bharatanatyam and Folk dances, we constantly explore new creative ways of bringing out the true essence of Indian dance. The choreographies are a reflection of fusing ethnic and modern genres of dancing to songs influenced by Indian classical music and a wide range of global/world music. Each dance composition is carefully crafted with intricate details consisting of synchronization, choreography patterns and thematic costumes.

Women wearing colorful clothes decorated with mirrors and embroidery, balancing a column of brass pots on their heads, sway in time to the music of a traditional melody.
