Natyam Academy of Performing Arts is dedicated to teaching the Indian classical dance form of Bharatanatyam to the communities around Plano in Texas. Interested students 5 years plus of any cultural and economic background, skill and ability can be a part of our school. We train students from the Beginner level up to Advanced levels. Certification programs are offered as well. Students may also take private lessons depending on the availability. Online sessions are offered to distant/out of state students with travel constraints. They also get to perform at different venues. At Natyam we train students in the Pandanallur style of Bharatnatyam. I personally believe that Style or bani is of least importance in a dancers career. Creativity, imagination, and discipline is key to the success of any dancer. I am trained in Pandanallur , Kalamandalam styles of Bharatanatyam and has worked in collaboration with Vazavhoor and Kalakshetra style dancers. We reach out to the neighboring communities through performances at the community temples, festivals, Charity shows, workshops and educational presentations at schools. Our goal is to see our students develop creativity, understanding, fluency, and love for the Art form.
