Artistic Director

Subhashini Rajagopal has dedicated herself to Bharatanatyam for over 20 years. As a student of the 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, fantastic expressions, and wonderful stage presence, she creates strong imprints wherever she performs. 

While pursuing dance, Subhashini also completed a Bachelors and Masters in Computer Science, and a diploma in Yoga.  She is proof that art can be successfully incorporated into our busy lives as a fulfilling, enriching, valuable contributor to personal development and success.
