Nilanjana Banerjee established RDM Studio in 2015. People of different ages, ethnicities and cultural background unite under Nilanjana’s tutelage. They experience cultural immersion and learn authentic lineage based dance.
Nilanjana specializes in teaching adults. A physically fit and conditioned body is the key to learning dance. At RDM Studio we have dancers 10-60 learning with us. Nilanjana bonds with all her students and motivates them to acheive their highest potential.
Scores of women have benefited from her teaching and mentorship. Nilanjana is an excellent teacher blessed with peace and patience in her soul. Within a short span of time her students imbibe her deep rooted love and devotion to practicing Odissi.
At RDM Studio each student undertakes their dance journey at their own pace. Individualized attention to all students makes dance a personal self-fulfilling experience. Different programs are offered keeping in mind the interest and ability of the students.
Nilanjana Banerjee is inspirational. She holds a unique teaching style while maintaining the authenticity of the Odissi dance tradition. She is not only encouraging and patient with students at the beginner’s stage but she also shares her extensive knowledge with students of all levels. What is special about her teaching method is that she incorporates strengthening exercises and focuses on flexibility of the students to help improve technique. She is clear cut and thorough. I look forward to my next lesson with her and I highly recommend RDM Studio for anyone who is eager to learn Odissi dance.
Nilanjana is a wonderful teacher. I decided to revisit Odissi after many years and she made it seem very easy. I never imagined online learning would be as benefiting as an on-site one. I look forward to our classes every weekend. Additionally, she has a digital library with all the dance steps and exercises, so I practice whenever I have time. I like how dedicated Nilanjana is to her students, whether they have a dance background or don’t. We send her videos and she is quick to reply and send her feedback. I absolutely recommend attending a class and getting an experience.
