Sridevi Nrithyalaya extends its well-acclaimed teaching and training to students who are geographically distant, by way of workshops and lec-dems, on invitation. Apart from our Principal Teacher, Dr. Smt. Sheela Unnikrishnan, our well trained and practically experienced Staff Teachers also travel far and wide to stamp the treasures of SDN into the minds of earnest seekers. 


After detailed discussions with the organisers and considering various factors, we design the syllabus for our workshops. Subject to the availability of our teaching faculty and authenticity of the inviting/hosting organisation, we accept invitations to conduct workshops and give a glimpse of our Melattur style of Bharathanatyam to students all over the globe.


Those who wish to invite us to conduct workshops or lectures are requested to do so well in advance via email. Terms and conditions along with the fee details will be provided on request.
