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.
Shipra was initiated into Odissi at a young age by Dr. Chitra Krishnamurti at the Nrityalaya School of Indian Classical Dance (Washington, DC). Early in her training, she had the great fortune to attend workshops by the late legendary guru, Padmavibhushan Kelucharan Mohapatra, as well as the late Padmashree Sanjukta Panigrahi. Shipra’s desire to pursue Odissi professionally led her to the prestigious Orissa Dance Academy in Orissa, India where she received advanced training under the guidance of the late founder and eminent guru Padmashree Gangadhar Pradhan and renowned dancer Srimati Aruna Mohanty. In her continued pursuit for perfection, Shipra returns to India almost every year to continue both training and performing.
Here, she performs Janasammohini Pallavi.
