The mission of Natyalaya School of Arts is to instill a sound understanding and enjoyment for rich and eloquent art of Bharatanatyam and Mohiniyattam in our students, while maintaining its purity, elegance and traditional roots.
Natyalaya School of Arts is an institution of learning for Arts founded by Mrs. Vrinda Sunil in the year 2006. This centre for learning aims to foster an environment and a community of diverse individuals who wish to understand, learn and practice the centuries old dance forms like Bharatanatyam and Mohiniyattam. The culturally rooted and vibrant engagements in Natyalaya helps the young learners to connect and fathom the richness and the magnitude of the Indian traditions and cultures. The artists, disciplined and trained by the experienced and accomplished ‘Guru’s’ of Natyalaya, have had the fortune and opportunity to perform the various stories of the most eloquent romances to the glorious battles from Indian mythological texts and puranas on any venues scattered through the United States.
Vrinda Sunil is a blessed danseuse who is trained under the renowned Kalamandalam Kalyani Kutty (Late) and Kala Vijayan in the traditional dance forms of Bharathanatyam and Mohiniyattam. Her passion for performing arts shaped her interests in dance as well as in music, which made her pursue a bachelors degree in Music from RLV College of Fine Arts, Kerala. Starting at the age of four, Ms. Vrinda’s Jathis and thalams kept on collecting applauses in every stage she performed along with her designs and choreography for many including the dance dramas of Shri. Swati Thirunal, Agni and Kannaki. Since starting her teaching career at the age of seventeen, she is a regular face in many of the dancing competitions happening across the state of Indiana, where she lives with her husband and two children.
