Kalaanjali School of Indian Dance

Kalaanjali School of Indian Dance Kalaanjali , LLC is a School of Indian Dance in Madison, Wisconsin, and is directed by its founder Meenakshi Ganesan. The name of the school, Kalaanjali , has its roots in two Sanskrit words. "Kala" means "art" and "Anjali" means "to offer".
