“Nrityakosh” is a performance house and a school for belly dancers and belly dance enthusiasts. Founded by Debapriya Das, Nrityakosh specializes in the Egyptian Oriental and Tribal Fusion forms of Belly Dance.
Nrityakosh is driven by a holistic approach where each form of belly dance is understood and practiced as a body of knowledge. The history, politics, socio-economic conditions, demography and culture of the places where Oriental and Tribal Fusion dance forms were born are all crucial components of this body of knowledge. To inculcate and cultivate this approach, where belly dance is not a collection of steps but a language of movement, is the vision behind Nrityakosh.
