Anjali School of Dance in Kuwait is the perfect example of perfection and devotion in the field of classical dance under the headship of Guru Smt. Sindhu Madhuraj. Being a dedicated and ardent practitioner of classical dances, she became a phenomenal person in the scenario of Indian classical dance forms – Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi and Mohiniattam.

The students transformed into the characters they depicted, through their Nritha and Abhinaya. The leaps and twirls packed in every sequence were performed with effortless ease and were received with rounds of spontaneous applause. The bhava exhibited was a feast for the eyes. The thundering ovation after each performance was a spontaneous reaction by the appreciative audience who were mesmerized by the spiritually elevating experience.
