Dance Collective

Prayukti Arts is an initiative started in 2017, to nurture, promote and retain Indian Art and Culture in the Bay Area. Under the artistic direction of Nitya Narasimhan, The dance collective is a venture to bring together like minded bodies and weave stories in space through the Bharatanatyam vocabulary.

ABOUT the Collective


The Prayukti Art Collective primarily consists of the senior disciples of the Prayukti Academy. The dancers undergo consistent and regular intensive training, aligning themselves both physically and mentally to the ideologies of the Bharatanatyam dance form, while retaining their individuality

The collective aspires to create meaningful traditional work which is relevant to changing modern times.
