Kalyani Kala Mandir is an organisation working for the proliferation of classical dance for more than a decade in the city. Our Director and founding member Guru Rashmi Khanna is a distinguished Bharatnatyam Guru of her generation in the city.

We primarily teach Bharatnatyam, the Indian Classical Dance, in the Dandayudapani Pillai style, the only one in the city. Carnatic music and Nattuvangam classes also available for dance students, which are a great advantage for students who want to pursue Bharatnatyam professionally.
