"The most luminous dance event of the year." -New York Times

The company transports viewers to the mythical world of Hindu gods and goddesses with the sensuous flow of Odissi, the oldest of India's classical dance forms. International tours have taken the company to Europe and prestigious U.S. destinations including the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival and Aspen Dance Festival, among others. The Nrityagram Dance Ensemble has garnered some of the most sought after awards for its various productions in India where the company runs a dance village. $39, $35; CMA members $38, $34
