Classical Dance and Music of India

Guru Surendra Nath Jena’s style is a unique, dynamic style, inspired by the temple sculptures of Orissa. From the similarities between images seen in Orissa’s rural culture in everyday life and Orissa’s various arts: Jatra Theatre, ‘patachitra’ scrolls, ‘talapatra’ paintings, Oriya texts and the exquisite temple sculptures of the Lingaraj, Jagannath Puri, Konark and Chaunsath (64) Yogini temple. – His is a style that brings temple sculpture to life.

Throughout his lifelong journey, life and dance became intricately interwoven for Guru Surendra Nath Jena. He saw them not as two distinct identities, but instead, mirroring each other in a myriad of ways. So inextricable were these for him, that life itself was like the dance of creation, and dance – the carrier of the essence of life.

Learn from one of his foremost students, Melissa Sproul-Singh, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, or bring her current teacher, Guru Jena’s eldest daughter, Pratibha Jena Singh, to your town on her next USA tour.

Melissa also brings her Tabla Guruji, Pt. Charanjit Chaturlal, when he visits the USA from New Delhi, to various cities for lecture-demonstrations.
