Led by Artistic Director Surupa Sen, the company has achieved worldwide critical acclaim. performing globally including an annual tour to the United States. The ensemble is devoted to bringing Odissi-one of the oldest dance styles in the world-to audiences worldwide. Although steeped in and dedicated to ancient practice, the Ensemble is also committed to carrying Indian dance into the twenty-first century.

Enabled by grants from Arts Funding organizations dancers not only explore creative expansions of tradition but are also able to commission fresh compositions from leading Indian classical musicians. They research, innovate, create original work, and perform to audiences across the globe.
