About Iti Nritya


Lord Brahma says: I give you the fifth veda Nāțyashāstra – replete with śāstra (knowledge/ text), śilpa (art/ craft) and itihāhsa (legends, stories, myths).

There is nothing that is not found in nātya, it is the imitation of life and its learnings.

Valley of words is beginning with a new vertical Iti Nritya. It will be a platform for upcoming dancers of all Indian classical dance forms to showcase their performances on our stage.
