Natya Tarangini - A dance school to Performing Arts Centre
Established in 1976 by Padmabhushan Awardees Drs. Raja and Radha Reddy and Kaushalya Reddy, ‘Natya Tarangini’ – Performing Arts Centre was started with an idea to globally popularize Kuchipudi style of Indian classical dance. Natya Tarangini has since evolved from a simple Kuchipudi dance school into a world-class performing arts centre in Delhi, constructed on a land allotted by the Government of India. With facilities such as an Amphitheatre, Art gallery and Hostel, Natya Tarangini poses as a second home to many disciples seeking a wholistic training in dance from India & abroad.
With the aim of propagating the rich Indian heritage of dance and music into a unique arts institute encompassing all activities involved in preservation and promotion of Arts, Drs. Raja and Radha and their entire family continue the tradition of the art by teaching Kuchipudi in a systematized manner to young and promising pupils. Today it has branched out to Hyderabad, Gurugram, Delhi, under watchful eyes of the Gurus Raja Radha Reddy, Kaushalya, Yamini and Bhavana Reddy. It is carrying on the training under the age-old “Guru Shishya” parampara.
Our endeavour is that students are not only taught the skill but also, get an opportunity to get familiar with the rich cultural mosaic of India while having the opportunity to participate with their gurus in various concerts. Deserving and under-privileged students are taught free of charge, specially-abled students are encouraged to take up dancing at the institute as well.
The institute is for anyone and everyone who is interested and is keen on initiating themselves into indian classic music and dance.
