One dance post a day. Since I can’t officially celebrate festivals this year, I’m going to post one dance post with a story everyday this Navaratri. Kickstarting Navaratri with a snippet of my favourite Devi Kriti - Ranjani.. I’ve never missed a chance to perform this item since the day I learnt it. And you might have seen multiple posts or photos of me performing this one.. And over the years it’s become somewhat of a go to comfortable piece.. Recently attended a workshop with my Guru where she was teaching this piece.. I know a lot of dancers who will have a problem with re-doing something they already (think they) know, who are item focused and want to keep learning and performing new choreography.. I’ll admit that I was one of these people 3 years back. Now however, I’ve been trained to find new moments in old pieces. Push myself to do better each time, appreciate the art of doing the same thing a million times and see how each performance or practice changes it into something more. This workshop transformed my Ranjani into something more. Now when I practice it, I can think a little lesser and give in to the pure joy the movements bring me. A live testament and reminder of how it takes years of practice to find one honest movement or moment.. Thank you @dancerukmini for being the best guru ever and pushing us to be the best we can! Happy Navaratri everyone :-) .

#thedarklord has been a journey in itself. This is my first ensemble work that has left me with a sense of fulfilment and joy. The #raadhakalpa production, premiered two days ago and I have a long list of people to thank.
Starting with my family who has been patient, loving and supportive through my absence and preoccupied conversations over the last 8 months, I have my husband @romenon and my parents who have been my pillar of strength.

My dancers are the most beautiful girls inside and out and I have had the fortune of working with them these past months. Their dedication, hard work, patience, persistence and ability to believe in my madness has made this possible. I'm deeply grateful to the universe for allowing me the privilege of having these lovely girls with me in this journey of artistic discovery. I could not have done anything without them.
My music composer , Dr Rajkumar Bharathi who is the most kind and loving soul , brought the story alive with his imagination and music. He was involved in every nuance in the story and I know that everything came to live because of his ability to try to see and travel with me in my crazy world as I did. Keertana Vaidyanathan, for her magical voice and singing. Sai Shravanam for his attention to detail while engineering the music. He could hear things that nobody could hear!! Hariprasad Shetty, our set designer who was the most accommodating and patient person to work with. He created magic with his work and the visuals were stunning. Making changes and adding things to the set just to help our theatrical accuracy.
Pritham Kumar, our light designer made the lights build the story and experience. We didn’t just “see” the dancers. The lights told a story of their own. His commitment to precision and his constant reevaluation made it a pleasure to work with him.
Our Production Manager , Masooom! Oh, what must I say about this wonderful little man. He drove me crazy and made me laugh all at once. I am so happy to have had him with us.
My Students of Raadha Kalpa, who were there as the backstage crew, they worked tirelessly, endlessly, hours on end! I can't fit everything here..... check FB pic: VB Suresh

Throwback to Shivaratri 2016. I've always loved being around people. So it's not surprising that I love dancing with company. I have been dancing in groups since I was 12 years old. Through college where I choreographed and danced with 25 other people and now with the raadha kalpa company. There's a different energy to dancing with other people and being together. So much more to learn and grow from and with each other. Duets are my favorites! So is @dancings0ul .. 👯‍♂️

Loved hosting Rukmini for MDA's First Bharata Natyam workshop, it was such a great opportunity to be able to attend both her workshops in NY and NJ and getting to know her better and her crazy dance schedule, she truly is such a great role model and inspiration. Looking forward to future workshops with her! #mayuradanceacademy #bharatanatyam #nycworkshop #rukminivijayakumar #raadhakalpa #latergram @dancerukmini

NYC Bharata Natyam workshop with Rukmini Vijayakumar! We learned so much in two days from technique to proper alignment and a very lovely dance piece consisting of so many different elements of Bharata Natyam. #mayuradanceacademy #bharatanatyam #danceworkshop #nataraja #nritta #abhinaya #nyc #pearlstudiosnyc #raadhakalpa #rukminivijayakumar @dancerukmini @raadhakalpa @samanthaleedancer @anjalibhattacharyya @sharikakaul_

Jump high, Touch the sky, Land like a butterfly. This is a poem my guru made for the 4 year olds but echoes in my head every time I do jumps 😄 such a fail effort. .

The learning process 🙏🏽
The first time you learn an item, you struggle to physically get through it. The more you practice it after, the more you breathe into it, till eventually it physically becomes a part of you. That's when you can truly emotionally start to enjoy the dance. Who else has felt this?
