‘The principles of true art is not to portray but to evoke.’
Documented in ancient scriptures, Bharatnatyam is not just a dance form; but a language with a beautiful visual vocabulary. If you, too, wish to pick up this dialect rich in gestures and expressions, you can seek guidance from our highly trained expert, Rekha Raju. These classes will educate students on the Adavus (foot movements) and Mudras (hand gestures) to prepare them for a 6-8 minute dance recital called Pushpanjali. By the end of the course, students will have a solid base in the dance form and prepare for the next level.

About the Teacher: Identified as a child prodigy after entering dance school at the tender age of 3 and a half years, Rekha Raju has come a long way. After refining her skills as a Bharatanatyam dancer, Dr. Rekha Raju has devoted most of her time to Mohiniattam, a dance form popular in Kerala.
Raised in Bangalore, the gifted artist now runs her dance school in Bangalore. Amidst this hustle and bustle, Dr.Rekha Raju completed her Ph.D. in dance from Mysore University, studying Margi and desi techniques of Bharatanatyam and Mohiniyattam.
Her apprentice and assistant faculty trainer, Keerthi Uday, is currently pursuing her higher studies at Mount Carmel College (Bangalore, India). She has been learning the dance form Bharatanatyam at Nrithya Dhama Temple of Fine Arts since she was six, under the guidance of Dr. Rekha Raju.
She completed her Prarambhik and Praveshik Purna exams in Bharatanatyam from Bhartiya Sangeeth Prasarak Mandal (Pune) with flying colors. Apart from Bharatanatyam, she is also learning the dance forms Mohiniyatam under Dr. Rekha Raju, Thalam, and Nattuvangam under Sri. Jagdeesh Janardhanan.
She is one of the faculty members of Dr. Rekha Raju’s troupe and has assisted her in several workshops and significant dance festivals. Keerthi aims to help and dedicate her knowledge to the enrolled students.
