About us

All teachers NateschwaraThe Indian artist Vijaya Rao and her husband Anton Tönz founded in 1980 the Nateschwara School of Performing Indian Arts – formerly Nateschwara Academy – as a school for Indian dance and music. Meanwhile it has grown into an institution where leisure and professional courses in Bharata Natyam, Carnatic music, Hindi Sanskrit and also Yoga and Meditation are offered. The Academy is one of the most distinguished educational centres for Indian dance outside India. The teaching mode at the Nateschwara Institute is strictly traditional and after completion of the basic training recognized certificates are given away. Yearly students of all nationalities graduate at the Nateschwara School of Performing Indian Arts and join thereafter the company of the Nateschwara Dancers.
