"Sri Gurubhyo Namaha"


Dear Art lovers and Well wishers,

                   Welcome to NatyaMudra!.

     For over 3 decades of my life, there was very few days that I didn't learn, read, watch or teach dance. For the past few years dance has taken a huge portion of my time and I feel very fortunate to do what I really love to do.                      

I am thankful to many who has helped me in my dance journey and to establish NatyaMudra.

 I was fortunate to have Gurus like RLV Usha(she was second rank holder in Bharatanatyam Diploma and a student of Natyacharya  Kalashetra  Smt.Vilasini), under whom I did my Arangetram. I continued under Smt. Chellamma(she was a disciple of  Smt. Kalamandalam Kalyani Kuttiyamma), I also learned Mohiniyattom(a classical dance style from Kerala) from her. I have also done intensive workshops under Padmabhushan V.P Dhananjayan and Shantha Dhananjayan and Mrs. Majari Chandrashekhar daughter of Padma Bushan Prof. C.V. Chandrashekhar. I truly believe that learning has no end as my journey through dance continues with Mrs. Shyamala Surendran of Dharani Performing Arts during my visits to India.
In addition to regular classes at various locations, NatyaMudra also offers intensive workshops by visiting artists from India. It includes Ms. Archana Sundararajan from Chennai and Kalakshetra Faculty Mr. K Mohanan. Mohan Sir has been doing intensive workshops for NatyaMudra students in the past few years and is scheduled to come again in May 2015. Natyamudra organized multiple workshops by world renowned artists like Kalaimamani Rama Vaidyanathan, Padmabhusan Saroja Vaidhyanathan. Academically, I have a Masters Degree in Computer science and left my long term career(13 years!) at a major US corporation to devote my time on dance.
