Urvasi Dance Ensemble specializes in a rare form of Classical Indian Dance, legacy of the adiguru Pankaj Charan Das, son of a temple dancer in Odisha, India. Urvasi has performed to acclaim in India, home of the dance, several times, and will be doing 15 performances in December 2017. The home of this ensemble is the state of Washington, and according to the foremost dance scholar in India, Dr. Sunil Kothari, “Odissi is more important than any other classical dance only in the states of Odisha, India, and Washington, USA.”
