Kalanidhi Dance Company


Bethesda-based Kalanidhi Dance expands the horizons of traditional Indian classical dance through contemporary ideas, innovative collaborations, and artistic excellence. The company captivates audiences with exquisitely conceptualized performances that push Kuchipudi in new and exciting directions while retaining the essence and integrity of the classical form. The New York Times has called Kalanidhi a “combination of bright energy, full-bodied sweetness and rapid precision” and “a rare amalgam of prime dance virtues.”
