Your body is the Universe. Your speech is all sound… become a mandala of divine energy, melody, rhythm and form!

Bharata Natyam, an ancient classical dance originating in South India, has empowered Vedic temple ritual for over 2000 years. This ageless and powerful art is a devotional practice revealing wisdom through sacred geometry, intricate rhythms, and storytelling. Join Kalyani for an introduction to the technique through traditional exercises, dance poetry and chant.

Kalyani began her studies in 1983 and is a graduate of Natayana of the Bay Area and student of SMT Rajendran of Tanjore, India. From 1992 to 2000, Kalyani was founder and director of Rasikala School of Dance in Portland, Oregon.
