Kalavardhini Nrityapeeth

Considering the nature of Indian classical dance as an all encompassing art form, Dr. Sucheta chapekar felt the need to inculcate students into this art form at a much younger age. And that necessitated the need to introduce a well defined course. Kalavardhini pioneered to start a course in Bharata Natyam initially in Mumbai way back in 1980’s. Today it has taken a fully developed form with the training being conducted in more than 30 centers all over Maharashtra and thousands of students are being benefited by it,making life more meaningful and enjoyable.

The well defined basic course called Mulagami is of six years followed by advanced level modules Rangapravesham, Riyaz, Praveen, and Adhyapak of two years each. Along with the fair knowledge of basic technique, the Mulagami course makes students understand the values of classical dance and its appreciation. The advanced level courses are geared to develop professional dancers and teachers. The assessments are conducted every 6 months and certificates are given at the completion of each course. All the centers have well trained teachers who have direct, frequent contact with principal Dr. Sucheta Chapekar.

The main teaching body is Kalavardhini Nritya Shala…!
