This is a dream platform for every classical dancer in India and this year, Jayashreeji was invited to perform on it. The week-long Khajuraho Dance Festival is organized by the Madhya Pradesh Kala Parishad each year in Feburary against the backdrop of the spectacular architecture of the Khajuraho temples. Dance lovers from across India and from international destinations flock here each year for a treat of India’s diverse dance forms.
This year, Jayashreeji and her troupe, showcased a mix of technical and abhinaya- based compositions at Khajuraho, bringing the magi of Kucknow gharam to the prestigious festivals. Particularly, this was a fantastic opportunity for the young dancers in her troupe to be exposed to a much wider and knowledgeable audience.
With one week to go, the preparations for Prayas 2016 are in full swing in our studio. Do join us for an evening of sangeet and nrittya that would not have been possible without the blessings of our gurus and the generous support of our well wishers from across the globe! We are extra excited to welcome the wonderful and exceptionally talented artist Bickram Ghosh as Chief Guest for our show. Do join us!

Guru Jayashree Acharya was honoured with an invitation to perform at the Madhya Pradesh Tribal Museum recently. The event,’Uttaradhikar’ was organised by the Sanskriti Sanchanalay on 23rd October, 2016. Jayashreeji, along with fellow kathak exponent Barun Banerjee and her students, regaled the audience with stellar performances which received wide press coverage. Some images and media reports:
Baithaks are an important part of Rasik Performing Art’s repertoire. In addition to the advantages of interacting with renowned artists in an intimate setting, Guru Jayashree Acharya hopes to use the baithak format as an opportunity for young dancers to experiment with new ways of expression before an audience comprising of their peers and well-wishers.
In this spirit, Rasrang, to be held on 27th of August 2016 at Nirvana Country, Gurgaon, will bring forth short pieces conceptualized and choreographed by Jayashreeji’s students. We welcome everyone who wishes to encourage the young dancers, who have worked hard to push the boundaries of their art.
