Nava Nritya Dance Academy of
Philadelphia trains dance enthusiasts of ALL ages in Bharatnatyam (South
Indian Classical Dance) and Navanritya (contemporary synthesis of classical
dance forms, martial arts, yoga and ballet).
This institution was founded in February 2004 as a training school and has
evolved into a close-knit family of 40 dancers including senior trained
dancers. Comprehensive classes are held in a beautiful ballet dance studio
(fully mirrored) in the heart of suburban Philadelphia on Sunday afternoons.
Students also gain knowledge
in fundamentals of other classical dance forms and folk dances to develop a
strong foundation essential for becoming a true exponent and choreographer
of the powerful language of Indian Traditional and Contemporary Art. Our
training is focused on utilizing Indian classical dance movements to build
strong techniques in precision of movements, creative presentation,
choreography, and music appreciation. We also spend considerable time with
our students to nurture their communication and story-telling abilities,
while improving body alignment, posture and stage presence.
Students enrolled at Nava
Nritya Dance Academy also get opportunities to perform at various
prestigious events & corporate shows in the Philadelphia area, in
association with professional dance troupe Navrang.
Our classes: currently we have an advanced groups
of students (adults and children) who have completed 8++ years of
classical dance lessons and five groups of children are in their first,
second, fourth, fifth and seventh year of lessons, respectively. We have
started two new groups in the Fall of 2011 - beginners aged 6++ and pre-K
children between the ages of 4 and 6.
Majority of our classes are nearly full, however
at teacher's discretion and with prior experience we can accommodate new
students on a case by case basis. Please email us at
