Samskritiki Shreyaskar is a dance academy established in Calcutta under the directorship of Smt. Rani Karnaa. The academy aims to study, teach, cultivate, demonstrate and develop the performing arts in general and Kathak in particular.
The academy has achieved an impressive measure of success in producing students who can dance with due poise and dignity. In spite of their youthful years, the students at the academy relish dancing in the requisite way without the touches of frivolity and mere acrobatics in rhythm that creep into Kathak easily so frequently. An even emphasis is laid on rhythm, footwork, figural beauty and expressiveness.
