CHHANDAKOTSAVについて CHHANDAK KALA ACADEMY a premier Odissi Dance Academy of Madhya Pradesh situated at Indore has carved a space for itself through its ceaseless efforts in evolving into a treasure house of dance learning.
At a time when Chhandak was initiated in Indore, the inhabitants of the city were not much sentient to the existence of such a graceful & elegant dance form in the age old Indian culture. Thus, the journey wasn’t a cakewalk but demanded relentless struggle to take it to the stature where Chhandak stands today. From organizing intensive workshops to training students to the best of their abilities, Dalia has never left a single stone unturned for realizing her dream of ‘making Odissi a way of life through Chhandak.’
For the past few years we have been organizing a Dance Festival namely “CHHANDAKOTSAV” in the month of July, to promote our rich cultural heritage. For the same we invite internationally renowned dancers to perform at the occasion, along with the Artists of CHHANDAK in order to attract the young generation and to promote Odissi in Central India.
