The School

Barisha Nataraj School of Indian Classical DanceĀ  started in 1973. Since then Barisha Nataraj has become a household name in promoting and performing classical dances in Kolkata. Today, Barisha Nataraj is an institution which teaches and performs classical dances in its purest form under one roof, thus creating a place in the field of art with around hundreds of students being trained both in practical as well as theory. The major dance form at the academy is the Indian classical style “Kathak” besides which semi-classical and Indian folk dance is also performed.

Many students have consistently fared well in the dance examinations (theory and practical) conducted every year by Prachin Kala Kendra (Chandigarh). Many of the students are recipients of Distinctions in Kathak besides receiving accolades in other platforms as well.

Over the years, Barisha Nataraj has produced innumerable dancing talents and performers. Every year the institute conducts Annual Day Function to promote and encourage young students from the basic year students to seniors giving them a platform to perform and gain experience and confidence.
