Jyoti Kala Mandir Celebrates its Silver Jubilee this year. Our founder/director Guru Jyoti Rout arrived in San Francisco 25 years ago, having only one student in the USA, who was also the only person she knew here, along with Lord Jagannath in her lap and heart, and the drive and vision to share the treasures of the ancient artform of Odissi dance. With a lot of inspiration and perspiration, Jyoti Kala Mandir has since nurtured hundreds of Odissi dancers and touched the lives of thousands through classes, workshops and performances.
Join us in celebrating this milestone of 25 years of promoting Odissi dance in the West! Samaya is our grand annual event, where all of the JKM dancers participate in one performance. Guru Jyoti Rout and the JKM teachers will dance along with each group, to share the joy of the duration of 25 years - the "SAMAYA" - of our dancing together. We invite you to join and witness this historical celebration and make it memorable with your presence.
