Abhinav Dance Company is a professional dance troupe based out of the IT capital of India, Bangalore. Founded in 1994, Abhinavas came into being with a passionate vision to make traditional Indian dance more convenient and available to audiences in India and across the world. Over many inspired years, Abhinava evolved under the creative leadership of the renowned dancing couple, Rajendra and Nirupama, and metamorphosed into Abhinava Dance Company.
Rooted in the Indian dance tradition of Bharatanatyam and Kathak, Abhinava Dance Company is constantly exploring new creative ways of bringing out the essence of Indian dance. It has evolved its own distinct style of presentation by fusing modern and ethnic genres of dancing.
Its musical compositions are a conflux of traditional Indian classical music with a wide range of global music that includes Spanish, jazz, and world music. Each dance composition is carefully crafted with intricate detailing in choreography patterns, synchronisation, suitable light and stage effects, and thematic costumes.
Abhinava Dance Company has a diverse repertoire of work under its extensive portfolio, combining the best of the West and the East. The company has performed to packed audiences across India, America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
Abhinava Dance Company today has a kaleidoscopic personality aimed towards dancing excellence. From a purely performance oriented entity, Abhinava has evolved into a multifaceted dance company that engages in a wide range of dance-oriented activities. Beyond active performances, the company offers formal training in traditional Indian Dances at the Abhinava School of Dance.
Under the expert tutelage of Rajendra and Nirupama, budding talent is nurtured, their skills are precisely honed and learning dance is made into an enjoyable activity. For dance aficionados, regular dance workshops are also conducted at various educational and community centres in India and abroad. Studio performances with interactive sessions between artists and art lovers are organised at Abhinava's exclusive dance studio in Bangalore, creating several events to access dance at various levels.
Abhinava Dance Company is also deeply aware of its corporate social responsibility. The company is consciously engaged in supporting the needy sections of the society, raising and supporting funds through its performances for charitable organisations in India, USA, and Switzerland.
