Tridhaara Institute of Kathak at Viman Nagar was started by Nayantara Parpia, a former disciple of Guru Smt. Yogini Gandhi and Pandit Birju Maharaji. At Tridhaara, yoga and Hindustani classical music play a vital role in learning the dance form. Barring this, students are also exposed to allied forms of art and well-being, such as painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, poetry, literature, fitness and nutrition.
There are different batches for children and adults. The classes for adults are held on the weekends and no prior training in dance is required to join the beginners batch. However, at least 8 years of training in Kathak is required to join the advanced batch, after an initial screening test.
