Information About Dance Productions

Indian dance is a multi-faceted activity. It could be a hobby, an academic interest, a spiritual quest, an aspect of personality development, a part-time career or a complete vocation.

Vaibhav has been instrumental in designing the Diploma courses in Kathak and Bharatanatyam (affiliated to Department of Continuing and Adult Education and Extension Work, SNDT Women’s University) at Lasya Centre for Dance Education and Research, a leading dance institute of Mumbai, founded by Rajashree Shirke.

Vaibhav, apart from conducting the Bharatanatyam course at Lasya, also imparts dance training to aspiring youngsters and professional dancers at various centers in Thane, Kandivli/Borivali and Vakola.

Diploma Course

Founded on December 1, 2003, Lasya Centre for Dance Education and Research introduced for the first time in Mumbai a three year Diploma in Dance [Kathak and Bharatanatyam] affiliated to the SNDT Women's University under the Dept. of Continuing and Adult Education and Extension Work.

Education in Indian Dance should include practice, aesthetics, study of allied arts and the discovery of the individual’s creative potential. Hence these courses provide the learner knowledge and skills, which are essential to obtain a well grounded and contextual understanding and performance of Classical Dance. These courses are uniquely designed with classes conducted in the evenings, catering to students pursuing other educational streams as well as working women.

~ Diploma in Dance (Kathak/ Bharatanatyam)
Eligibility: Post Tenth Standard Diploma for women | Duration: 3 Years

~ Advanced Diploma in Classical Dance [Kathak/ Bharatanatyam]
Eligibility: Post Twelfth Standard Diploma for women | Duration: 2 Years


Vaibhav believes that teaching classical Indian dance is a one-to-one process. The Guru-shishya parampara is still prevalent in classical dance. Hence, beyond the purview of an academic course too, he gains immense satisfaction in training and guiding dance students and professional dancers.

Vaibhav’s inspiring teaching is credited to his knowledge gained through classroom instructions at Nalanda Nritya Kala Mahavidyalaya, numerous on-stage performances in India and abroad, traditional and experimental choreographies and dance administration at Lasya.
