What We Offer
Kathak is the movement of India, it’s how we communicate and how we share our experiences. It has influenced every dance to come out of our country. From Bollywood fusion dances to Indian Folk dancing. In essence, Kathak is India.
Indianica Academy is at the forefront of bringing South Asian Performing Arts to America. In particular to the residents of New York and New Jersey, who wish to experience our culture first hand. When we say first hand we do actually mean first hand.
We offer simply the best culturally accurate Kathak dance instruction in the USA, (from non other than Ms. Padma Khanna).
We also offer Bollywood, Indian Folk Dances, Western pop, Bollywood Fusion, Hip Hop, and Ballroom Dances too.
When you join us, either as an ongoing student of the art form or as a complete novice wanting to learn from the ground up, we welcome you. We came from humble beginnings and we will always stay humble. Our purpose is to be inclusive.
Our Academy is really YOUR academy. We want you to jump in and immerse yourself in the beauty and majesty of our culture.

Some of the most popular names in Bollywood come to us and take part in this annual extravagance. With crowds over 1000 guests, it really spotlights the students and gives them a taste of the fine art of Kathak to playfully spirited Bollywood. It’s also a full evening of entertainment with several . It’s a platform for the students. Something we have done for the past 18 years. Something no other institute in the TRI-STATE has done this.
