Dance Ballets


This child friendly thematic presentation is based on a folklore prevalent in Kannada based on the story of a snake and a mongoose. It imparts the virtues of patience and trust to the young minds in this age of instant gratification and rush through the medium of dance.


This is a duet presentation signifying the duality in life. From ages, Hari and Hara have been viewed as distinct and contrasting, whereas in fact they are two sides of the same coin. One may take any path, that of ‘Bhakti’ or ‘Virakti’, but ultimately, he shall reach the divinity. This is a creative and self-composed presentation showing the unity of minds through unity of Gods..
