So blessed to discover this Bharatnatyam dance studio in the heart of Delhi!! It’s a unique space that welcomes the young and the old, beginners and the experienced alike…the dance techniques taught are immaculate and it’s a joy to be here! Strongly recommend it to anyone wanting to dedicate themselves to the art of Indian classical dance.

My daughter is a disciple of Smt Guru Rashmi Khanna for past 4 years. Learning Bharatnatyam under the guidance of such a proficient teacher and the inspiring environment at Kalyani Kala Mandir brings a holistic development to my child’s growth path. We feel truly blessed that our child is developing under the right guidance and a great teacher!

After learning Bharatnatyam for nearly a decade, my love and curiosity for the dance remains as undiminished as it was when I was starting at 6 — in a huge part thanks to the encouraging guidance of Guru Smt Rashmi Khanna. Her passion for the dance is wildly infectious, and each class is as fun and knowledgeable as it is challenging. She is wonderfully patient while teaching, and believes that to express the dance in the most honest sense we must understand what it is we are trying to say. It is times like these that her devotion for the subject really shines through.

Having followed Kalyani Kala Mandir to all their locations in Delhi, and finally ending up in another country, I continue to learn twice a week over zoom. It is something I wholeheartedly would never want to stop doing, and while I did have the option to continue elsewhere once I had moved abroad, I was absolutely certain that not only would I not receive such expert tutelage anywhere else, I also knew that the love and happiness I felt while dancing was a product of my Guru’s influence.

Bharatnatyam is a rich dance form, and being at KKM has allowed me the opportunity to learn beyond the practicalities of the dance and foray into theory, meaning, music, performance and qualifications. I couldn’t be more grateful for the knowledge and love I’ve been bestowed at this institute, and would implore anybody wanting to venture into the classical arts to take that step here.

I’ve been learning Bharatnatyam under the tutelage of Guru Smt. Rashmi Khanna since April 2005. I started when I was 9 and still go for classes twice a week. With each year, my skill as a dancer has grown tremendously and I can say without an ounce of hesitation that this amount of growth would not have been possible under any other guru or dance school.

The amount of dedication and attention given by Guru Smt. Rashmi Khanna to each student is second to none. She is a very skilled teacher and knows how to bring out the best in each individual dancer. Despite having stage fright, I have successfully performed several times on stage- both solo and as part of groups.

Having learnt Bharatnatyam from Guru Smt. Rashmi Khanna since so many years, getting a chance to assist her in choreographing new pieces and innovative show concepts is a privilege.

I absolutely recommend Kalyani Kala Mandir to individuals of all ages. If you desire to learn Bharatnatyam, then this is undoubtedly the best place.

I completed my Arangetram at the age of 23, which was only possible due to the flexibility Kalyani Kala Mandir gave me to manage my post graduate studies along with dance practice- ensuring I complete both with equal rigour. Not just that, I can proudly say that under KKM banner and Rashmi Ma’ams guidance I successfully completed my Masters in this art form too. I can confidently say that the level of empathy and understanding that she shows towards her students is unparalleled and this always keeps her students coming back and wanting to continue this art despite their busy work schedules and personal responsibilities. As mother of a 7 year old- living overseas, I feel such pride to be associated with KKM and Rashmi Maam- who continues to light the lives of all her students. In her, I found not just a dance Guru but a friend, mentor and guide for life.

Kalyani Kala Mandir is the best classical dance institute, where apart from classical dance we can also receive classical music training. I have been learning Bharatnatyam under the guidance of Guru Smt Rashmi Khanna for 15 years now and I can surely say that she is the best Bharatnatyam dancer as well as a Guru. She not only gives every student chance and opportunity but also motivates everyone with her positivity. Kalyani Kala Mandir also stages Prerna Utsav, the annual presentation, which gives immense confidence to budding dancers and keeps them motivated.
I would recommend Kalyani Kala Mandir to anyone who wants to learn Bharatnatyam, and not miss a chance to learn under Smt Rashmi Khanna.

My daughter has been learning with Guru Rashmi Khanna for many years and only grows fonder of her each day. She loves her dance and her teacher. Rashmi is the most dedicated and committed teacher I have come across. God bless!

KKM is the best institute to learn Bharatanatyam. Guru Ms. Rashmi Khanna is the best teacher ever. She not only knows each and every student well but also brings out their hidden talents with all her positivity. The annual shows organised by KKM make sure that each and every student gets to participate and showcase their skills.

Mihir Halan, New Delhi

I have been a part of KKM for as long as I can remember. As a child I was not a very enthusiastic dancer, however learning from this institute really helped me shape the dancer in me and now there is nothing I enjoy more! Guru Smt Rashmi Khanna is the best guru I could ask for! Not only does she teach everything very patiently, she also keeps a very positive and interactive environment in the class which helps all the students to be super comfortable!!

Kalyani Kala Mandir is an institution dedicated to the promotion of classical dance and music. It encourages the younger generation not only to learn but also to understand the rich heritage of Indian classical performing arts. It is a treat to watch the talented bunch of dancers on stage. Guru Rashmi Khanna’s dedication and motivation reflects in each presentation of KKM. It is one of the best institutes in Delhi to learn Bharatnatyam.
