Arushi Mudgal:

“Arushi reveals a fine blend of inherited talent, hard work and individual passion…” – The Hindu, Delhi

Arushi Mudgal is one of the foremost young talents in the field of Odissi known for her technical virtuosity and creative approach to tradition. She has trained under her aunt and Guru Smt. Madhavi Mudgal at the Gandharva Mahavidyalaya, Delhi. Arushi tours extensively as a soloist performing at various prestigious festivals within India and abroad. In 2008, Arushi was invited by the famous dancer-choreographer Pina Bausch of Wuppertal Tanztheater to perform at the Internationales Tanz Festival in Dusseldorf, Germany. For her contribution in the field of Odissi dance, Arushi has been presented with various awards including Sangeet Natak Akademi’s prestigious national award – Ustad Bismillah Khan Yuva Puraskar (2011) amongst many others.


Vishwakiran Nambi:

Vishwa’s tryst with Nritarutya and the world of professional dancing started in 2007 when he joined the Company. Driven by his innate passion for the art and his perseverance, Vishwa has grown with the Company and is now a lynchpin of Nritarutya. 


Life has come a full circle for Vishwa as he now stands on the other side, choreographing for the Company’s repertoire. His enthusiasm for life and zeal for everything he does, reflects in his choreography. His style is unique as it is an apogee of the ruggedness of certain Indian dance styles and the dynamic virtuosity of contemporary dance. With the success of his bold, experimental choreography “Jogwa”, he has taken a step towards the fruition of his vision to revolutionize the Indian contemporary dance scene. Vishwa has been trained in variety of Indian classical, martial art as well as contemporary dance styles under the likes of; Guru Minal Prabhu, Allen Kaeja, Erica Kaufman, Nakula Somana, ashwin mohan, Santosh Nair amongst many others.
