Since its founding in August of 2003, by Sonia Chaudhuri, Upasana Performing Arts Center has grown to be largest and top rated Kathak school in the state of Tennessee. 


Our mission is to provide a rich cultural resource to future generations, through the exploration of India's cultural fine arts.


Our studio offers Kathak, Hindustani vocal, tabla and sitar classes.  We take pride in providing our students unique opportunities to participate in workshops by master artists and perform in prestigious events locally and nationally.


​We aim to challenge ourselves, expand our horizons, and empower each of our students and dancers.  We take on creative projects and new themes to showcase  our art forms and culture.  We celebrate female empowerment, and we appreciate how dance and music nurture us in many different ways.  If you would like to be part of our community, we would love to hear from you.


We exult in sharing this exciting journey exploring the incredible beauty and joy of Indian dance and music!
