Artistic Director

[column_content type=”one_half”][/column_content][column_content]
Subhashini Rajagopal has dedicated herself to Bharatanatyam for over 20 years. As a student of the well-known Dhananjayans at Bharata Kalanjali, she inherited the art in its most classical and pristine form. Her devotion and love for Bharatanatyam is total, and over the years she has carved a unique niche for herself.

Subhashini is an exemplary dancer who has performed locally and internationally. She has also choreographed and participated in many productions. With graceful movements and fantastic expressions, as well as wonderful stage presence, she creates strong imprints wherever she performs.

Subhashini holds a Bachelors and Masters in Computer Science, as well as a diploma in Yoga from the Sivananda Yoga Training Center in Chennai, India. [/column_content]
