Irudaya Dance Company is our teaching and performing company based in Toronto. We teach various techniques and the importance of Bharathanatyam, while encouraging our students to explore their creativity. Having explored other dance genres like Bollywood, Gaana and Tamil cinema as Inter-University competition choreographers throughout our postsecondary education, we are confident in our ability to teach these genres alongside Bharathanatyam.
