Performing in Malaysia

3 years, 9 months ago Bharatanatyam 1

I am so very excited to be performing in Malaysia next month on the 10th and 11th (September, 2013). I just received a copy of my first interview in a Malaysian paper.

My performances in Penang and Kuala Lampur are part of a fund raising effort to support Isha Vidhya, a project of Isha Foundation that provides quality education to rural communities across […]

Architecturally it is among the most beautiful temples I have seen, but I think that can be said of a very […]

My First Steps…

5 years, 1 month ago Bharatanatyam 8

Ive added this space to my website as a means of expression of my experiences as and when I perform, choreograph or get involved in a project. My journey as a professional dancer is just about a year old and already people had opened their arms and hearts to me. I can only hope that as the years go by and my experience grows that I will be worthy of such love. As a younger student, the grammar of Bharatanatyam […]
