Established and run by Padmashri Geeta Chandran, Natya Vriksha enshrines the best philosophies of Indian classical culture. The classes are taken by Chandran herself, or by someone trained by her. Her approach encompasses training students both in dance (theory and practice) and dance aesthetics. Related fields such as music, asharya (costume and make-up), stage design, sound and light technologies are also taught. In addition to this, students are also made aware about the ancient epics, legends and mythology. The admission process involves an audition.
