Guru A. Lakshman Swamy

I moved to Chennai, India for 6 months from October 2017 till April 2018. During this time I trained under Guru A. Lakshman Swamy rigorously. He has instilled in me a critical eye towards nritta, abhinaya and choreography.

Guru Smt. Shreelata Suresh

Shreelata Suresh not only taught me advanced techniques in Bharatanatyam but also encouraged me to choreograph and present items. It is because of her guidance and motivation, I am able to choreograph my own works today.

Guru Vidwan Chandrashekara Navada

Guru Chandrashekara Navada initiated me to Bharatanatyam when I was a kid and taught me the basics of Bharatanatyam. He also gave me numerous opportunities to perform and cultivated the love of performing in me.
