Sattriya Dance Company

Sattriya Dance Company's mission is to preserve, present, and promote Sattriya - a 500 year old dance form originating in the vaishnav monasteries of Assam, India. Until now it continues to be a ritualistic art practiced by monks in kirtan ghars (prayer halls) of Assam.Only recently has the dance form become accessible to women.

Sprung from a desire to tell the story of Sattriya and raise awareness about the satras (monasteries) through performance, lecture demonstrations, classes, research, documentation, and collaborations, Sattriya Dance Company was launched in 2009.This Philadelphia-based labor of love is led by Co-Artistic Directors and sisters-in-law, Madhusmita Bora and Prerona Bhuyan.
