Dhirana Academy of Classical Dance

Dhirana Academy of Classical Dance was founded in 2011 with the sole purpose of nurturing the children in Northwest Arkansas with an interest in learning Bharatanatyam. Dhirana strives to bridge the gap between society and the divine art form by inspiring, educating, and guiding. We aim to build a strong foundation of Bharatanatyam in its disciples.

Dhirana strongly believes that exposure is one of the keys to development and success hence we encourage students to attend workshops, performances of other artists, and to participate in programs and competitions.

Megha.P.Rao and her students are roped in constantly for performances throughout NWA and across the USA. Dhirana has seen arangetrams of 3 students in the year 2018 – 19 and these girls are back in the studio to continue their learning process.
