Summary: The 2nd International Odissi Festival was organised by IPAP between August 28 - 31, 2003, in Washington D.C. Dedicated to the memory of Guru Pankaj Charan Das, who passed away in June 2003, it brought together Odissi dancers and scholars from all over the world.
Established in the year 2000 by Guru Bichitrananda Swain, Rudraksh Foundation has been growing steadily, with performances abroad and throughout India, as well as on-going classes and private instruction catering to the continuous flow of serious dance students coming from all over the world.
