About Us

Ved Institute of Performing Arts, helmed by dance artist and entrepreneur Aditi Yadav, was established in 2009 with the aim of providing a comprehensive education in the classical dance form of Kathak, encompassing theory and dance instruction. The institute currently has three branches across Mumbai. Our student strength is currently more than 1000, with students aged 6 years and above. We've participated in several dance festivals across the country: Andheri Festival, Mulund Mahotsav, Geet Ramayan, Natyanjali Mahashivratri Festival, Tarang Festival, International Doctor's Conference, Akhil Bharatiya Sanskrutik Sangh, and Jabalpur Mahotsav.  

The Institute is registered with the renowned Gandharva Mahavidyalaya and conducts government-recognized exams for students in Kathak. We also welcome and instruct hobby learners and enthusiasts with the same passion. A group of such passionate dancers from the institute have branched out to become a part of Ved Dance Company, a professional dance troupe. This team features experienced classical and folk dance artists. Ved Dance Company is known for producing theme-based classical, folk, and Bollywood creations and also, mesmerizing dance-dramas catering to the varied audience nationwide. 

At Ved Institute, we train students in the concepts of nritya (interpretative dance) and nritta (pure dance). Our students perform group and solo pieces based on stories from Indian mythology, such as Krishna Leela, Dashavatara, Shiv Shakti to name a few.  

The Institute also conducts specially designed introductory sessions and workshops on Kathak in colleges, schools, and corporate companies. We've also choreographed group and solo dance presentations in schools like DY Patil International School (Worli), Arya Vidya Mandir (Bandra), Learner's Academy (Bandra), and Dhirubhai Ambani International School (Bandra).

Alumni speaks


"I finished my Kathak VISHARAD from Ved Institute of Performing Arts in 2019 and must say, there couldn't be a better place. The learning environment is extremely supportive.  Aditi ma'am is constantly motivating each student to push their boundaries and become a better version of themselves, something that is rare among dance teachers today. Another highlight is how she is constantly motivating each of the students to help each other and promote team spirit - one of the biggest reasons I managed to complete a decade at VIPA ( and it is safe to say, that journey isn't ending any time soon ). There is so much to learn and achieve as a Kathakaar and I can't wait to do so with Aditi ma'am and VIPA. "




"I have completed my diploma from Ved Institute of Performing Arts and my experience has been great. It has been almost 10 years since I joined VIPA and  I still continue to be part of it. Guru Aditi Ji is supportive and approachable.  She gives personal attention to each student.  Now I am very happy to be a part of the VIPA administration team and work as an assistant to the founder Director"




I am very happy and delighted to share with you all that I successfully completed my Kathak Visharad 2nd year with Distinction. This was possible only because of the training, guidance, and support of my Guru ADITI YADAV Ma'am of Ved Institute of Performing Arts (VIPA). I thank from the bottom of my heart my Guru Aditi Ma'am for motivating me and boosting my spirit to appear for all the exams and help me to reach this goal.
I also like to share that VIPA is not just a training Institute but a family to me. I initially joined VIPA just to learn Kathak as a hobby but throughout my Guru motivated me to prepare myself for the various levels of exam. VIPA also trained and groomed me for stage performance. Aditi Ma'am has the skill of channelizing the person's capability to achieve the goal.
Thank you once again Aditi Ma'am 🙏❤
