Kalamandir Dance Company (501c3) is a contemporary dance ensemble that uses the vocabulary of classical Indian dance to explore new spaces of artistic expression. Instead of diminishing the foundation of our classical styles, we look to investigate their communicative potential when merged with Western dance traditions. Using Odissi, Kathak, Bharatanatyam, Capoeira, Flamenco, Modern and Ballet training, our dancers converse with movement and create dialogue with expression. We are driven by creativity, human emotions, and a desire to be released from the four walls of our daily existence. Our movement vocabulary aims to create a reachable area for all people to participate and communicate.

Based on the core of the Indian Contemporary style lies the fusion of the intricacies of classical Indian dance: footwork, expression, and hand movements, with targeted exercises to provide for a fulfilling and fresh contemporary dance routine at the end of every class.
The class attempts to investigate the communicative potential when merging western dance traditions with a classical Indian foundation. It starts with a vigorous yet meditative warmup, and spends some time after that on Indian classical and contemporary technique, which then leads to a dynamic combination at the end of every class.
Students are able to not only learn the rudimentary fundamentals of classical Indian dance but also are able to experience a completely different approach to contemporary movement using elements of the ancient Indian aesthetic.
