Another important feature of our cultural calendar is the Annual Festival in San Diego in collaboration with the Centre for World Music.

The pedagogy adopted at Orissa Dance Academy is based on the Gurukul Parampara of medieval India.

To enable a learning environment, lecture demonstrations, workshops and seminars are held regularly by maestros of Odissi dance, music and other classical art forms.
