Bharatanatyam exponent, Vani Ganapathy, a set on Flickr.
Vani Ganapathy, trained in Indian Classical Dance form Bharatanatyam, is a foremost exponent of the dance form. She started training at the age of three in Calcutta under T. A. Rajalakshmi, then moved on to Mumbai.
She started performing when she was seven. She has travelled across the world performing. She lives in Bangalore, where she has set up Sanchari, a dance academy.
Loved watching Vani’s Abhinaya at her recent performance at Indian International Centre, New Delhi. I would have been elated to see her performing with a lively pace though!
