Navarasa Academy of Performing Arts

Bharatanatyam, Folk, Fusion, Mridangam, and more...

Welcome to Navarasa!

Navarasa academy was started in the year of 2004.  Navarasa means 9 Rasas which stand for Shringaara (love), Haasya (laughter), Karuna (compassion), Roudra (anger), Veera (courage), Bhayaanaka (fear), Bheebhatsya (disgust), Adbutha (wonder), and Shaanta (tranquility).

It started with an idea of having Dance, Music, Percussions & Yoga under one roof.  Very quickly it gained the respect of many and several students started training at Navarasa.  Navarasa teaches in a traditional way offering classes in Bharatanatyam, Folk dances, Yoga, Contemporary, Mridangam, Kanjira, Ghatam, Tabla, and Vocal music. 

Bharatanatyam, Folk dance, Yoga, and Contemporary are taught by Navarasa's director Anandi Srinivas. Mridangam is taught by Venupuri Srinivas.
