The art institute of legendary Kathak maestro, Padma Vibhushan Pt. Birju Maharaj



KALASHRAM is the art institute of Kathak maestro Pt. Birju Maharaj. It focuses on imparting training in the field of Kathak, alongwith various other associated disciplines i.e. vocal & instrumental music, yoga, painting, Sanskrit, stagecraft etc.

Kalashram, whose syntax is `Kala’ + `Ashrama’, dedicates itself to true work, creative thinking and humble attitude.

The objective of the institute is to produce highly talented students from all strata of society and help them to earn, sustain & grow through their art.

Art has a very strong role in developing the mind, the balance in perception, clarity of thoughts, strengthening mental & physical energy, inspiring leadership qualities with a compassionate approach. Kalashram believes that the society should realize – art is not merely entertainment, it enlightens one’s existence.
