kRtyaVed Academy for Performing Arts in Bangalore, was established in 2017 by Shrruti Ajjay Ratnakar to provide artists, trainers, gurus and students a platform to learn, improvise, impart knowledge and provide an alternative career to those who seek it.
The founder, Shrruti Ratnakar, has been an exponent of Bharatanatyam for many years. Belonging to a lineage of classical dancers, pursuing and continuing with the family heritage came naturally to her. Having been trained since a very young age in the classical form by her parents and gurus, Guru Jayshree Pillai and Pt. Venugopal Pillai, Shrruti dreamed of setting up her own dance studio where she could nurture and hone aspiring young minds and talents.
Ajjay Ratnakar, her partner both personally and professionally, takes a keen interest in his wife’s ambitions and supports all her endeavors.
The academy aims to create a warm and supportive space for those with a passion for the varied art forms. The center focuses on quality education in the field of arts, music, dance and fitness. We endeavor to create awareness and spread the Indian culture through our training programs and workshops, thereby developing a sense of appreciation among people for the different arts.
The academy has four verticals –
- the performing arts
- martial arts and fitness
- shooting sports and
- academic enrichment
kRtyaVed is also a place where likeminded artists convene, ideate and discuss about the enhancement of the different art forms. It provides them an appropriate setting to meet and deliberate innovatively to develop new concepts, trends and fusion of the different arts.
