Nrityagram is a dance village is located near Hesarghatta in Bangalore (away from cities) district. It lies at a distance of only 35 kilometres away from Bangalore. The village was created by thewell known Odissi dancer Protima Bedi.
In Protima Gauri’s own words, “it is a community of dancers in an abandoned place in the middle of nature. A place where nothing exists, except dance. A place where you breathe, eat, sleep, dream, talk, imagine – dance. A place where all the five senses can be high-quality to perfection. Aplace where dancers drop negative qualities such as jealousy, small-mindedness, greed andcruelty and evilness to hug/support their fellow workers as sisters and support each other intheir trip towards becoming dancers of good quality/good qualities”. Apart from the(excellent/very unusual) dance, other offerings of this place is the beautifully made village – madeup of mud houses, greenery and open spaces gives a pleasing feeling to the visitors and (people who live somewhere) alike. A visit to Nrityagram would also give you the chance to explore theHessarghatta Holding tank (or area). It lies five kilometers away from the dance village.
