Guru Surendranath Jena



Guru Surendra Nath Jha had a natural aptitude for dance and music from childhood. Like his contemporaries he too joined the Kala Vikash Kendra and studied Odissi under various gurus including Guru Mayadhar Raut.

After qualifying for the degree course in 1966, he moved to Delhi and joined Triveni Kala Sangam as an Odissi guru and has trained several students. His style differs from those of other gurus in that he has introduced elements of folk forms with various sculpturesque poses. Among his children he has trained his daughter Pratibha Jena in Odissi.
