About the Founder
It was a dream, which took some years to realize. An ardent believer in hard work, creativity and ‘never say die’ passion, Mrs. Mausam Sharma founded a prestigious dance academy and called it Nrityangan. It was her dream since she started teaching dance at her house, to set up her own institute and impart /share her knowledge and talent with other interested budding dancers. It was her pure dedication towards her dance and the lord of dance, that she alone managed to come so far.
Nrityangan Academy was founded with the solemn objective of inculcating the spirit of rich culture and heritage of India into the young minds through dance forms. In the ocean of talent, creativity and aesthetics, it is a small step taken by Mrs. Mausam Sharma towards the preservation of the values that personifies classical, semi classical and folk dance forms. She started with a modest number of 5 students, building it up to 200 at present and still counting. With monetary gains not being the goal, the big idea remains to nurture and sculpt the serious students into understanding the deeper philosophy behind these dance forms.
