Nrityagram is India’s first modern Gurukul (residential school) for Indian classical dances and an intentional community in the form of a dance village, set up by Odissi dancer Protima Gauri in 1990. The residential school offers training in Indian classical dance forms, Odissi, Mohiniattam, Kathak, Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi, Kathakali and Manipuri, eight hours a day, six days a week for seven years, following the ancient Guru-shishya tradition. Designed by famous Indian architect Gerard da Cunha, the community is situated near Hesaraghatta Lake 30 km away from Bangalore.
A quiet place outside bangalore, where you can see people who dedicated their life for dance. Taj Kuteeram hotel is just opposite to this and you can have a good breakfast, or a short stay if you like the ambience.
