Rahul Acharya
   Biography

Rahul Acharya is one of the most loved and popular Odissi soloist in the International arena today.The world fondly knows him as the Divine Dancer. At 29, Rahul is treasured for his mastery over the technical aspects of Odissi and his display of sublime emotions. His dance is imbued with beauty, artistry and precision. His rendition of Odissi has been inspired by the Late Guru Debaprasad Das and his teacher, Guru Durga Charan Ranbir.

Other than his dance, Rahul is an avid devotee of Lord Jagannatha and well versed in Sanskrit. He enjoys reading and researching on Shastras (Scriptures) and bringing them to the forefront through his dance. Rahul wants to rediscover the exact antiquated technique of "Odramagadhi" (Odissi as we know it today) by harking back to the basics of "Natyashastra", the definitive ancient text on Indian Performing Arts, and bring it to the forefront through his dance.

As a performing artist and a teacher he emphasizes on mastering technique as the "Natyashastra" states and in empowering the world of Odissi through reading the original texts in Sanskrit. He imagines a world by connecting each country through the essence of Odissi by being a synonym of the dance form itself. He has trained in Raja and Hatha Yoga at the Satyananda Yoga Vidyalaya, Bihar school of Yoga.
