Odissi first originated in the Hindu temples of Odisha (previously named Orissa), an eastern coastal state of India. It originated about 2,000 years ago and was close to extinction during the colonial period. Through the hard work of numerous gurus, Odissi has popularized once again.

Check out these beautiful pictures from the Odissi dancers of Academy of Odissi Dance , directed by our dancer this week, Ms. Gopa Rautray. If you have not checked out her interview, make sure to do so by clicking the following link: https://dancersoftampabay.wixsite.com/dotb/home/goparautray

Wonderful traditional dance..... I have been trying to learn Odissi but I live in South Florida and I have hard time finding a dance school or for them to call me back. Any suggestions?
