Mission & Philosophy

The Kalabharathi School of Dance is committed to promote and present Bharathanatyam, an ancient South Indian dance form, through instructional classes and professional performances.

We aim to have a multi-cultural approach to our presentations, so that audiences of all backgrounds may experience and enjoy this rich classical dance form.

Our goal is to promote this dance form as a cultural bridge so that we may share the peace and spirituality that is an integral part of this form of artistic expression.
