Welcome to Nirananda

Nirananda is the pure joy of the Spirit, our true Self. Bharata Natyam and Indian classical dance in its true essence is overflowing joy. For this is the nature of joy that transcends anything physical: after the initial steps of learning the craft, going through the physical effort and mental concentration, channeling your attention in one direction and also controlling different parts of your body, mind and emotions at the same time, after all this there is the real enjoyment of dance: transcending all the things mentioned before and going beyond them, in a fluid movement and the stillness that follows it.
Whether you are passionate about dance, Indian culture, want to learn Bharata Natyam or just to gain an informed appreciation of the art form, or if you are simply passing through, Welcome! Follow my blog as I continue to add new materials, articles, blasts from the past and news of future projects. Soon, dance classes will be announced and you can sign up. Till then, you can still contact us and let us know of your interest. We-ll keep you updated.
