Nrityagram, the Dance Village
I spent a beautiful Saturday morning at the Nrityagram, the celebrated dance school and venue of Bangalore’s Woodstock- the Vasanthahabba. It was gratifying to know that the ancient Gurukul system of learning is still kept very much alive at Nrityagram, apart from the fact that some of the country’s finest dancers are produced and nurtured here.
