This is our spiritual space-our temple where we offer prayers to Jagannath.
Odissi is a temple dance. We essentially dance as a puja and have to feel the spiritual connect.

Happy Lohri 🌸

May this year bring you HEALTH WEALTH and HAPPINESS

Lohri is a Punjabi festival marking the end of the winter solstice, the transition to longer days and the welcoming of wealth.

Invoking Goddess Lakshmi with this Odissi dance pose.

Who is Lakshmi?

Lakshmi is a Hindu goddess, but not just any goddess. She’s Vishnu’s (one of three creators in the holy trinity or trimurti) wife. See the overlap?

She’s not a subordinate but an EQUAL contributory PARTER. What is creation worth without health wealth and happiness after all?

She IS the Goddess of health wealth and happiness. ABUNDANCE.

Lakshmi is the divine power that transforms dreams into reality. She is prakriti, the perfect creation: self-sustaining, self-contained Nature.

She is maya, the delightful delusion, the dream-like expression of divinity that makes life comprehensible, hence worth living.

She is shakti, energy, boundless and bountiful.

Grateful for my sister Shruti Dutt for spreading her wisdom and teaching me about all the many festivals and celebrations in India 🇮🇳

Best way to invoke Lakshmi is to dance to this powerful sloka. 🙏

I started teaching in California since 2016. I have taught Odissi to numerous people here. Many only came for trial sessions, some learnt for a few months, others till we did a stage performance. All of them were my success stories! I have the ability to give my love & knowledge unconditionally as well as nurture & mentor my students. The time each one spent with me would hold special memories. After a hughely successful 2019 show at California Center for the arts I am extremely proud that during the pandemic I got the chance to build a team of dedicated dancers.

I consider myself a Cultural Ambassador in the true sense. I have had to carve a niche in the dance world becoming so successful as a performer in my 40’s when most dancers stop performing. I believe my pathway is unique and unprecedented. There is no monetary reward in what I do.I passionately love my work and know that I am very good at it.

Popularizing Odissi at the grassroot level and taking its benefits to other mainstream cultures is my dream. Hopefully 2022 will give me the opportunity to fulfill my vision.

10 years back went with my Guru Mitradi to meet and do a special workshop in NYC with my fav dance group Nrityogram. For me any special dance training or learning has always been under my Gurus guidance. This was fun & intense as we brushed thru basics & specialized Nrityogram techniques. I am glad to have gotten this opportunity to interact with Surupa, Bijoyini and Pavitra. ... See MoreSee Less
