To create future generation artists, teachers, researchers, creators, arts entrepreneurs and leaders is the main objective of MAHAGAMI. Instructional sessions in music, sanskrit, yoga, Indology, computer applications, theatre, visual arts, meditation, environment, Gandhian thoughts, etc are included in the curriculum in addition to rigorous training in the chosen art form in order to enhance students' knowledge base and equip them with a good command on their artistic abilities. MAHAGAMI initiatives range from imparting dance and music training in performing arts, 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. The students of MAHAGAMI are exposed to a rich experience of learning and performing at National and International Festivals and Conferences in addition to participating in many community-centric and research assignments. MAHAGAMI envisions its own Artist Facilitation Programme that can offer consultation and coordination for its students to perform, teach, curate and work as professional artists.

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 ‘artsphere’ to paint his/her own ‘artscape’.

Learning Spaces
MAHAGAMI GURUKUL is a spacious lush green campus with 6 aesthetically designed cottages that form the learning spaces for dance, music, yoga, instruments and theatre. In addition, there are performance spaces, dining cottage, residential spaces and administrative section that form a complete ecosystem of its own for training, furtherance and promotion of arts. Large shady trees form punctuations and breathing zones between the independent units and thus, there is ample provision of social distancing and safety precautions.
