Welcome - Namaste......

"When we dance all worries of the material world melt away creating beauty, peace, and contentment around us"

Upasana is a premier Institution for the promotion and preservation of Odissi dance. Based in the Boston area of New England, we follow the philosophies and techniques of the legendary Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra. Our programs, instructions and events are conducted under the direction of Mouli Pal a committed and sincere exponent of the art form.

"In presenting 'Vandana', Upasana's founder Mouli Pal and her students paid homage not only to the centuries-old classical dance form of Odissi but also to its preeminent Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra. 'Vandana' was a showcase for Odissi's sculpturesque movements, with Upasana's dance team displaying remarkable commitment to the art form." Boston Examiner
