Natya Institute Of Kathak


Established in rather unconventional times, the pioneering Natya Institute of Kathak and Choreography (NIKC) lives and breathes dance. A platform of unparalleled stature and achievement, the Institute is dedicated to protect and nurture the legacy of Indian culture. Alongside setting new standards in dance education and the art of performance, Natya Institute seeks to inhabit the public domain through dance.

The history of Natya Institute of Kathak and Choreography (NIKC) dates back to 1964 when Padma Vibhushan Smt Kamala Chattopadhyay established the institute under the aegis of Bharatiya Natya Sangh, the Indian Centre of International Theatres Institutions Trust, UNESCO. Formed with the intention of providing methodical training in the art of choreography, the Institute was led by an array of veteran artists and its format was designed by Guru Dr Maya Rao.

In the year 1987, NIKC set foot in Bangalore with the assistance of the Government of Karnataka and at the special request of former Chief Minister, Shri Ramakrishna Hegde. Ever since, thousands of students have learnt and adapted to a life of dance – a life of unmatched bliss.

To create an institution of international standards for systematic training in dance, thereby promoting the art, in performance and in education.
