Chhandam’s Ramayana

In May 2009, students from the Chhandam School of Kathak premiered the age old Hindu Epic, the Ramayana.  Choreographed, composed, and directed by Pandit Chitresh Das, Chhandam’s Kathak interpretation of the Ramayana included over 300 students, a live orchestra, and appearances by members of the Chitresh Das Dance Company.  You can view a review of the 2009 show here: India West Review.

Chhandam will be performing the exciting story of the Ramayana once again on May 21, 2011 at Chabot College in Hayward, CA.  Just as we all look forward to the Nutcracker every December, we can create a new tradition with Chhandam’s production.  As for me, I am thrilled that I will be a small part of this year’s show!  For the latest updates and ticketing information, visit  To watch a quick preview of what’s in store, check out the video below!
