Nartaki Dance Residency

Nartaki is a dancer who is a complete embodiment of culture. The dancer is seen as the essence of art and the manifestation of energy. While the dancer is human, he/she has the medium to transport the soul to transcendental heights of bliss.

Nartaki Dance Residency was created with the intention to offer a unique and inclusive space for holistic training and practice of Indian Dance and Yogic Arts in North Goa, India.

Nartaki Dance Residency vision is to honor and preserve the ancient traditions and philosophies of India. Our mission is to reach the world community who dream to travel to India to learn its rich Performing Arts Culture in a safe and holistic enviorment. We will honor the traditions, philosophies and teachings by implementing them in our educational programs.

Our philosophy will allow students to learn the true essence of Classical Indian Performing Arts Culture through rigorous training and commitment, yet offering a guided opportunity for the embodiment of their true nature as unique and individual aspiring artists to be expressed. We wish to inspire our students through tradition and offer a space for cultural exchange and empowerment.

We will be offering courses on Odissi, Classical Indian Dance in the Guru Kelu Charan Mohapatra Gharana. We will also be offering training in Music, Kalaripayattu (Martial Art form from Kerala) and Modern Dance. The mission is to offer a complete curriculum in Yoga, Indian Dance and Contemporary Movement.

We encourage our students to join for the whole season as we will be offering an opportunity to train in Indian Performing Arts through a 200h + Certified Diploma Program recognized by the International Dance Council (CID / UNESCO-The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization : . The serious student will have a complete curriculum study process and will be tested thoroughly.
