As a teacher he gives dancers a very fresh perspective, blending styles and thus breaking the monotony of movements thereby pushing the boundaries. Some of his 

disciples have already made a mark in the Indian Film Industry and The famous reality shows. To name a few: Sudhesh Adana ( Bismil song-Haider movie), Tushar Kalia ( 

Ae. Dil Hai mushkil-choreographer), Rishi Sharma ( So you think you can dance)
Santosh Nair has performed widely within the country and abroad including the Modern Dance Festival in West Germany, the Big World festival in Brazil, Kalanidhi 

Festival in Toronto and The Motherland Project with Sampad –South Asian Arts, Birmingham.

This workshop with Mr. Nair's evolved methods of how to utilize one of these Indian form (Mayurbhanj Chhau) to create very distinctive contemporary style, which 

provides deep useful insight to dancers who plan to step into international contemporary scene.
Also selected dancers will get opportunity to work with Mr. Nair in the Upcoming Production.

Mayurbhanj Chhau- has highly evolved techniques of its own for which it differentiates itself from other forms of dance. These techniques of Mayurbhanj Chhau are based 

on various body movements. 
The elements that the dance form highlights are:
•    the complete usage of body
•    very fluid usage of legs and arms
•    a combination of both grace and energy and
•    a perfect sense of body control 
Also, it is one of the rare dance forms which draws from a wide range of subjects-like-martial craft, mythology, history, daily activities, movements of the sub-human 

creature and imaginative themes.
All of the above gives today’s dancer a unique and varied vocabulary to explore from and ultimately enhances the scope of creation.
