Bachelor of Dance – Odissi

In the era of new-age and industry relevant courses, the rich, ancient traditions of the classical arts are not receiving the attention they deserve. But Sri Sri University is hosting industry relevant and new-age courses, alongside courses which are well-ensconced in the Indian tradition.

Course Details

The curriculum includes courses on English Communication, Sanskrit, Cultural History and Yoga.

Besides opportunity to perform on stage, in various local and national level events organized inside as well as outside the campus, the students at SSU also gain exposure through the world-class conferences, festivals, events and various forums organized by the Art of Living.
