What’s happening at NaVaRaSa?


We started operations in Oct 2009 and we have come a long way…..not necessarily in the ‘business’ perspective alone, but a lot in creative exploration too…..and we have collaborated with artists, enjoyed the highs, learnt from the lows, reveled in the passion of ART in its true essence…..all in all a wonderful journey so far.

Time for change…..time for new things….time for churns….we are undergoing some internal changes in structure and Business Model (ah! the big words!). We hope to keep the fervor alive through it all and engage with our existing and new Art Partners in making the changes effective, as well as optimal usage of resources and networks we are in.

You may experience an interim slowdown of activities at NaVaRaSa, but do not be disappointed….we will be back.

We are looking to rent the studio space for similar pursuits on a per hour basis or block booking, with the trainers taking complete ownership and NaVaRaSa providing support at the background. 

Also looking for an enthusiastic studio manager to manage resources, interact with trainers, maintain the studio resources…part time or full time as the case may be.

For both of the above, we are available at navarasa.mail@gmail.com or 9741290592

In the meantime, in the summer of May 2013, Divya our new kathak trainer will conduct summer workshops of An Introduction to Kathak and its Nuances…..more details to follow.

So long…..
