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.
Sangeeta Dash began learning Odissi at 7 with Guru Durga Charan Ranbir. She spent several successful years as an actress in the Oriya film industry, juggling dance and acting, before she made the decision to concentrate on dance in 1990. Dash has been awarded the 'Sanskrit Samman' by the Sanskrit Prathisthana, New Delhi, 'Singarmani' award by the Kal ke Kalakar Sammelan at Mumbai in 1989 and the prestigious “Mahari Award” from Late Guru Sri Pankaj Charan Das in 1998. She became the first recipient of the ‘Pankaj Charan Das Award’ in 2003. She runs her own dance academy in Pondicherry.
