About VPAC

VPAC was established as early as in 1986. Since its inception it has grown from strength to strength and has succeeded in training and grooming hundreds of young talents into exceptional professional dancers. Vasundhara Performing Arts Centre imparts the knowledge in Pandanallur Style of Bharatanatyam and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, emphasising on the purity of the disciplines.

All languages are expressive mediums and the dialect and grammar is essential for effective expression. The proper approach to mastering any language is first through the dialect and the mastering of grammar follows. In the terms of Bharatanatyam, the dialect consists of various techniques of expressions and movements. It is only after achieving mastery over the technicalities of basic dance movements like Adavus and Theermanams, the perfection or Angashuddha is attained. Following this the learning of Bharatanatyam enters the next phase of training involving, understanding the complexities of the depiction of a character and intricacies of choreography.

What we Offer:

At VPAC, we understand that rigorous training in all aspects of Bharatanatyam, is significant to nurture the dancer in every student. The student - teacher ratio is also an important aspect if the training is to be effective and scientific. We also understand the need for an interference-free and serene atmosphere to concentrate on the nuances of Dance.

Vasundhara Performing Arts Centre strives to provide precisely these ideal conditions to all aspiring students and teachers. The centre offers coaching in Nattuvanga, Bharatanatyam, Yoga and Classical Music. Experienced teachers/artistes with in-depth knowledge of the subject help train the students under the supervision of Dr.Vasundhara Doraswamy herself. Regular Symposiums, Seminars, Workshops, and Lecture Demonstrations are organised to benefit the students of VPAC, and Artists in general. Encouragement Scholarships are awarded to deserving students. We have recently entered in to M.O.U. with Indira Gandhi National Open University, New Delhi.

The four National Festivals organised every year offer a smorgasbord of Classical Dance and Music Artists from all around India and recently from around the globe, also providing an unconventional learning environment.
