It was a dream, which took some years to realize. An ardent believer in hard work, creativity and ‘never say die’ passion, Ms Anjana Dongre founded a prestigious dance academy and called it Nrityangan. Nrityangan literally means ‘Nritya Ka Aangan’ or ‘house of dance’. It was her dream since she finished her arangetram, to set up her own institute and impart /share her knowledge and talent with other interested budding dancers. It was her pure dedication towards her dance and the lord of dance, that she single handedly managed the academy for so many years.
Nrityangan Academy was founded in 1992 with the solemn objective of inculcating the spirit of rich culture and heritage of India into the young minds through dance forms. In the ocean of talent, creativity and aesthetics, it is a small step taken by Ms. Dongre towards the preservation of the values that personifies classical, semi classical and folk dance forms. She started with a modest number of 5 students, building it up to 65 at present. With monetary gains not being the goal, the big idea remains to nurture and sculpt the serious students into understanding the deeper philosophy behind these dance forms.
