Lisa established Odissi Lasya to promote and preserve the Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra lineage through a strict adherence to the technique, and well rounded learning to include music, theory, and history.     

Our learning approach:

  • Establishes a strong dance technique  through rigorous and continuous training.    

  • Fosters a connection with our dance Guru's and mentors from Srjan through domestic and international workshops   

  • Follows the Odissi curriculum so students can pursue examination. Examination is only offered to students that have a solid understanding and ability to execute the material.

  • Items and technique taught are based upon the Srjan gharana and will reflect compositions by Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra and Guru Ratikant Mohapatra.  No exceptions.  

Class Requirement

  • Minimum age to start is 6 years of age.   

  • Students are expected to come to class prepared and practice regularly outside of class.
