We are so proud to introduce our next dancer Charitra Sankar!! Read below to know more about Charitra, her dance background and all the amazing things she does, apart from Bharatanatyam :) "Charitra started learning Bharatanatyam at the age of 4 under Guru Smt.Nandini Ramani, one of the very first disciples of the legend Guru Smt.T.Balasaraswathi. Having learnt for 23 years, Charitra has performed in numerous prestigious platforms in Chennai. She also had the opportunity to perform at the Natyanjali festival in Chidambaram for two consecutive years and at Melattur Bhagavatha Mela.
After coming to the US, Charitra has continued to perform at various classical dance shows and also loves to collaborate with valley dancers for Bollywood, folk, and other freestyle performances. She has also been learning Taalam from a renowned mridhangist, Shri. Subramanyam Sudhakar, to help deep dive into the technical intricacies of rhythm formats.
Charitra also took a first step as the co-producer of SoulMate Phoenix Productions, during fall 2017. She has started training young students and adults over the last few months to be able to promote and pass on this ancient art form and technique to the future generation." Charitra is also one of the choreographers of our upcoming production "Triloka" to be showcased THIS SATURDAY August 18th, at the ASU Preparatory School!!
