Nilanjana established RDM Studio San Diego in October 2015.
This studio is a branch of the main RDM School in New Jersey. For the first few months a series of workshops were held in various locations amongst a diverse group of people. RDM Studio became fully functional from March 2016.
RDM Studio showcased their dancers for the first time at the prestigious Mingei Museum, Balboa park on Sept 24th, 2016. This was followed by the Annual Studio Anniversary Celebration with the team.
This spirit of bonding & teamwork is the essence of the studio. A bond & tradition Nilanjana personally maintains with members of the greater RDM family in New Jersey.
