Kalasri – Richness of Arts

Dance Ensemble

With its stories, music and magnificent costumes, the Swiss-Indian Kalasri Dance Ensemble evokes a world of dance in which body, emotion and thought connect to fill the spectator’s soul with joy.

The Keshava artist family and the Kalasri Dance Ensemble present Classical Indian Dance, mainly in the Bharatanatyam, but also in the Kuchipudi, Odissi and Kathak style. Their vast repertoire contains also folkdances from various Indian regions, Bollywood style dances and programs with innovative choreographies.

School of Indian Dance and Yoga

D. Keshava and Esther Jenny founded the Kalasri School of Indian Dance and Yoga – known for its authentic character – in Basel back in 1976 and are today supported by their daughters Anjali and Sumitra.

For more than three decades, many students from various backgrounds have been enjoying lessons at the Kalasri School. Apart from their regular teaching classes, the Keshavas give workshops and seminars throughout Switzerland and abroad.
