Immersed in the rich culture of Odissi and its devotional roots since early childhood, Mr. Acharya has cultivated a deep and dynamic approach to the dance form.  A celebrated virtuoso artist, he has performed as a soloist in many prestigious venues around the globe.

Dancer, choreographer, researcher, Sanskrit scholar, lecturer, and writer, Rahul Acharya was the 2014 recipient of the Aditya Vikram Birla Kalakiran Award.  In 2013 he received the Ram Gopal Award for Best Male Solo Dancer from the Dance History Society of India. Mr. Acharya became the first male Odissi dancer honored by the Sangeet Natak Akademi with the Ustad Bismillah Khan Yuva Puraskar Award in 2009.
