As part of Srjan Summer Workshop for a month - 10th May 2015 to 10th June 2015, Sri Rahul Acharya held sessions on Natya Shastra during 29th May to 30th May 2015 in Srjan's Bhubaneswar premises.
It is very important for a dancer to understand the shastras and the rich literary content and music of any classical dance form. Some Gurus and Institutes give utmost importance to providing the 360 degree teaching and in a manner befitting Guru Parampara tradition. I am glad to have come across the Srjan Summer-workshop and requested Sri Ratikant ji for publishing his very personal note and I am very thankful and obliged to him and Srjan for their gracious acceptance.
A note from Sri Ratikant Mohapatra::
Rahul Acharya is one of the most loved and most popular male Odissi dancer. The world fondly knows him as the divine dancer. Other than the dance he is a brilliant scholar and an avid devotee of Lord Jagannath. As always it was a great experience to be part of Rahul’s lecture today on ‘Natya Shastra“ at Srjan.
I wish Rahul all success and may god bring him many more achievements in life. — with Rahul Acharya and Rajib Bhattacharya.
