Ganesa Natyalaya, founded in 1974 by Guru Dr Saroja Vaidyanathan with a small student body, has grown significantly and now has both Indian and international students enrolled. In appreciation of the work done by Guru Vaidyanathan, the Government allotted a piece of land in the Qutab Institutional Area in 1983. With the support of patrons of art, the Natyalaya’s building came up in 1988, being the first institution for in-depth training in performing and several other aspects of Bharatanatyam, in the capital.

Over the past 49 years, Ganesa Natyalaya has grown steadily and increased, with its troupes performing at more than 1000 events, including prestigious locations both domestically and overseas. The golden jubilee programme was designed to acknowledge, respect, and commemorate the institution's accomplishments. Envisaged to be thematic in nature with atleast half a dozen power-packed events during the year, each featuring performances of Bharatanatyam along with one of the other classical dance forms. Speaking on the occasion, Guru Dr Saroja Vaidyanathan says, “One small way to show our appreciation since Ganesa Natyalaya could not have grown in isolation. The whole ecosystem of all the dance-forms, the society and the patrons helped the institution to flourish in terms of creative ideas and curations, choreographies that helped catharsis in the society, and collaborative presentations that broke any barriers that existed within arts."

About Ganesa Natyalaya: One of the premier Bharatanatyam institutions in Delhi, over 310 students of Ganesa Natyalaya have done their Arangetram till date. Many of them have taken Bharatanatyam as a full-time profession with almost 30 of them set up their own dance institutions (almost half in India and the rest overseas in US, Columbia, Singapore, and Europe) and all of them remaining affiliated to the Natyalaya and continuing to impart the various dance pieces learnt under Guru Saroja Vaidyanathan. ICCR too has sponsored various foreigners to the Natyalaya (over 30) rendering them as India’s cultural ambassadors in their respective countries.

About Guru Dr Saroja Vaidyanathan: Saroja Vaidyanathan (B. 1937) is a notable exponent of Bharatanatyam dance form. She is a prolific choreographer and has to her credit twenty-five dance dramas and nearly 1000 individual dance pieces. Besides she has written several books on Bharatanatyam and composed dance music. Her contribution has been well deserved as is evident from the various awards she has received, Padma Bhushan, Padma Shri, Sangee Natak Sadasyata, Sangeet Natak Akademi and Kalaimamani awards to name a few.
