At a distance of 30 kms from Bangalore & 5.5 Kms from Hesaraghatta, Nrityagram is a famous dance village on the outskirts of Bangalore.

The village was established in 1990 by the well-known Odissi dancer Protima Bedi. The idea behind Nrityagram was to develop a traditional Gurukul to teach Indian classical dance. The school offers training in Indian classical dance forms, Odissi, Mohiniattam, Kathak, Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi, Kathakali and Manipuri.

One of the best times to visit Nrityagram would be during the Vasanthahabba festival held to celebrate the arrival of spring. Artists from all over the world perform at the Nrityagram amphitheater during this festival.

A temple was built in 1998, which depicts the image of Kelucharan Mohapatra, guru of founder Protima Bedi in a dancing pose. Hesaraghatta Lake is very close (about 4 kms) to Nrityagram and can be visited together.

Casual tours and guided tours are allowed in Nrityagram. Guided tours need to be booked in advance.
