KALASADHANA DANCE COMPANY
Founded by Samyuktha Punthambekar in January, 2020 and based in Ottawa, Kalasadhana Dance Company is established to create revolutionary, contemporary inspired Bharatanatyam dance.
The name 'Kalasadhana', Kala meaning - Dance and Arts and Sadhana meaning - Dedicated, Devotional hard work or Penance.
Kalasadhana Dance Company is a not-for-profit organization.
Offering Kalakshetra style Bharatanatyam dance classes.
Offering IBPOC mentorships to emerging arts workers in arts administration and artistic explorations.
KALASADHANA DANCE COMPANY is looking for a new passionate and engaged board member. Please email us your bio + CV if interested.
Kalasadhana Dance Company (KDC) acknowledges the location of its activities on the traditional, unceded territories of the Algonquin nation, as the traditional custodians of the land. We respect the land as the territory of the First Peoples. Adawe (colonlially known as Ottawa) is still home of many Indigenous peoples, and we are humbled and honoured to have the opportunity to work in their community, and on their territory.
I hope that, as you train the next generation in the Kalakshetra style of Bharatanatyam dance, you will be able to share this art form not only with the South Asian community of Ottawa but also with the wider Canadian community. May your dance, teaching and arts administration experience serve you well as you embark on this new venture!
