NANDINI GHOSAL is a dancer with a difference.
Possessing a remarkably original style of representation, she is able to realize - through interpretation - the unique philosophic essence of classical Indian dance. Nandini has undergone extensive training in Kathak before losing herself to the overpowering beauty and subtlety of Odissi. After an initial training in Odissi under Smt.Poushali Mukherjee, she came under tutelage of the maestro Guru Kelucharan Mahapatra – the father of present day Odissi. Nandini has mastered the intricacies of Odissi under the legendary Guru for sixteen years and is one of his most prominent disciples. She has played the central roles in several dance-dramas choreographed by the legendary Guru. Beside being a dancer, choreographer and teacher, she is an accomplished actress having acted in several award winning feature films and on television serials. She had been a member of the World Arts Council, an UNESCO sponsored organization of the Valencian Government, Spain. She is an A-graded dancer for Doordarshan (Indian Television) and empanelled with the ICCR (Indian Council for Cultural Relations)
