Talent Development

Teaching forms an integral part of my practice. I am very passionate about sharing the knowledge I have received from my teachers and mentors, and the experience I have gained over the years.

I believe that learning is an ongoing journey, and I approach teaching as a dynamic and symbiotic learning process.

Bharatanatyam Technique

I have spent many years observing my teachers and refining my teaching methods to be able to offer a deep understanding of Bharatanatyam technique to my students.

I offer both intensive one-on-one classes and group sessions from complete beginners to advanced master classes. These classes are tailored to individual needs. Please contact me for more information.

Workshops

I have a wealth of experience teaching a range of age and abilities dance technique, creative movement and choreography.

Within school and youth group settings, a popular option is often a taster Bharatanatyam workshop and then some creative task-based exercises to allow group work, followed by a sharing of what has been made. The length of the workshops can also vary depending on the needs and desired outcomes of the group.

Full day/residency workshops can also be enjoyable and planned accordingly so that the group can try out a range of activities and work towards a small performance.

Mentoring/Choreographic work with younger dancers

In the past few years i have begun to create small choreographic works that compliment my method of teaching Bharatanatyam.

This year I have created works for Nupur Arts in Leicester, and been a founder member of the Natya Project, a Birmingham Dance Hub supported programme that offered five talented dancers the chance to work in a full time professional environment as a taster for transitioning into the world of a full-time dance career.

I have also been asked to mentor young dancers as part of the YUVA GATI centre for advanced training programme and The Bonnie Bird Mentoring Scheme.
