Ganesa Natyalaya

Beginning with a handful of students in 1974, the Ganesa Natyalaya soon grew rapidly in strength and eminence and is reckoned as a premier institution in India. It is due to Guru Saroja's able tutelage that the students of the Natyalaya receive sound grounding in the theory and practice of Bharata Natyam along with Carnatic classical music to enable them to appreciate and understand the harmony of Indian music and dance.

Till date 104 students have completed the arangetram (debut). These include scholarship students from various countries sponsored by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations, Delhi Government's Sahitya Kala Paishad and Centre for Cultural Resources and Training.
