Every year, Natyalaya stages several productions, ranging from traditional Bharathanatyam dance dramas to more contemporary musicals.

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall, NYC

This year, we are among a select group of troupes invited to perform in Carnegie Hall in New York City! We are very grateful for this opportunity to grace one of the grandest historic theaters in the United States with our choreography. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our dancers!

We have a group of around 20 traveling and staying in New York for the show with hefty out-of-pocket expenses, and we also need to pay our teachers, choreographer, and studio rental fees. Any small amount would help us defray costs. We appreciate your help!

Past Productions

Meera: the way of the storm

Meera Bai, a princess of yore, gave her heart to Lord Krishna when she was but a child. She devoted her life to the Lord, seeking to be one with the divine, and breaking many social norms for her love. She refused to conform to the expectations of royal women, wives, and widows, instead following her heart. In her time, she was an outcast, yet today we know her as a trail blazer and social reformer. She produced incredible art, built a strong following, and did not hesitate to call out powerful men who took advantage of uneducated commoners. A poetess, a singer, a devotee dedicated to Krishna… and above all a woman of strength who dared to live life on her own terms… Meera Bai chose the way of the storm.
