Natyanikethan School of Indian Classical and Folk Dance was founded by Guru Kantham Chatlapalli with the mission to create interest and develop passion for Indian dance. For the last 30 years, Kantham Chatlapalli has used this medium to teach patience, discipline, and commitment through the ancient classical art form of Kuchipudi. The school's methodology focuses on keeping instructional groups small, consisting of 3 to 4 students, to allow individual attention. Lessons permit students to not only learn the dance form, but the traditions and culture of India. Through this unique and specialized technique, Natyanikethan has been able to produce dancers that have gone on to affect the reputation of Kuchipudi in the United States.
