Guru Shishya Parampara
She feels blessed to have Mitra as her Guru and seeks her guidance and blessings in all her endeavors. During her visits to Kolkata, Nilanjana has had the honor of learning from Guru Muralidhar Majhi. She has also trained extensively at RDM with her mentor, acclaimed dancer choreographer Mr. Sukalyann Bhattacharya and has worked under his direction in all the Nritya Taranga shows. RDM has provided Nilanjana the platform to develop as a reputable INTERNATIONAL performer and assist in the institute’s operations, show rehearsals and backstage work.
Nilanjana firmly believes that dance is an art form where instruction is not just handed down from Guru to disciple but the teacher is the guiding light who illuminates the path as the pupil takes her own tentative steps towards a lifelong journey. She wishes to bring the same dedication to her teaching.
A trip down memory lane:
“Mitra was the perfect guru for me, with her wealth of knowledge & never ending enthusiasm, she was determined never to let me give up. I learnt to dream big. I promised to train harder than anyone else to realize this dream of mine.”
