One of the premiere Odissi dance ensembles performing today, Nrityagram has the unprecedented distinction of making the The New York Times’ “Best Dance of the Year” list two consecutive years in a row (2015 – 2016). More than a dance company, Nrityagram was founded in a village devoted to dance. The all-female troupe’s daily life of intensive training and meditation brings to the stage compelling performances that are at once sensual and lyrical. Infused with the intoxicating rhythms of traditional music, their sinuous forms and rapt expressions transform the dancers into goddesses on stage.
