If Konark Natya Mandap is the right hand, Chandrasekhar Kalamandir is the left hand of Orissa Dance Academ. Based above the waters of the superb Chilika Lake at Parikula Nilakanthapur, Bramhagiri, Puri this institution promotes young talents from the rural areas in Odissi dance and Odissi music. It also provides ample scope for the rural people to be familiar with the classical performing art tradition of Orissa.
