about the school
Kalagriha (House of Art) School of Performing Arts was founded in 2020 by the Ottawa-based Bharatanatyam artiste Ms. Stuti Mukherjee, who serves as Kalagriha’s Artistic Director. “Kalagriha” is a Sanskrit word for “house of art” and was created to nourish Indian classical arts across Ottawa through Bharatanatyam dance classes, performances, workshops and lecture demonstrations.
Bharatanatyam is one the oldest dance form that Indian culture has to offer the world. At Kalagriha we are proud spread the knowledge of this rich dance art form to the next generation.
In the spirit of keeping tradition alive, Kalagriha has been conducting an annual Vidyaarambam ceremony on the auspicious day of Vijaydashami, every year since the school’s inception.
At Kalagriha we strive to teach all aspects of Bharatanatyam, in its highest standard, while keeping in mind that every student has different learning curve.
