A serene Gurukul-based institution founded in 1996 with a cluster of earthy yet elegant architectural spaces in a lush green campus, MAHAGAMI GURUKUL has been a vibrant destination for creative, artistic, academic, contemplative and path-breaking activities within the gamut of Indian cultural heritage and arts education since more than two decades. MAHAGAMI initiatives range from imparting dance and music training based on the time-honoured Guru-Shishya tradition, to social and educational outreach projects; from research, publication, heritage projects, curatorial initiatives, to community participation projects, wellness and healing, and performances in national and international forums and festivals.
Having been credited for introducing Kathak, Odissi, Dhrupad, Pakhawaj and other heritage arts in the region of Marathwada, for establishing Aurangabad as an important destination in the Global Cultural Map and having earned generous appreciation from the Gurus and experts from arts community and reverence from thousands of disciples and well-wishers; MAHAGAMI GURUKUL is set for a journey towards redefining arts education in order to make the experience of performing arts training an all-encompassing enrichment with respect to contextual studies, performance practice, cerebral and creative stimulus, and contribution to societal ecosystem. MAHAGAMI GURUKUL Center for Performing Arts under the MGM University has introduced Certificate, Diploma and Degree programmes in Performing arts (Gurukul Pattern) since 2019 with an aim to empower the artistically inclined, highly motivated, disciplined and creative aspirants who are interested in shaping the future as mainstream artists, arts-writers, creators, knowledgeable curators, evolved arts administrators, erudite scholars and awakened teachers.
In the process of pursuing the chosen programme at MAHAGAMI GURUKUL Center for Performing Arts, the dance aspirant is equipped with a sound understanding of the dance style and with devoted practice, deep observation, and involved participation in all spheres of training; the learner is gradually able to create short dance narratives, initiate dance dialogues, understand body dynamics and blend concepts from theory and practice in his/her ‘dancesphere’ to paint his/her own ‘dancescape’.
