ABOUT THE ARTIST 

Shalini Shivashankar, Founder and Artistic Director of Upahaar School of Dance, U.K. has been undergoing training in Bharatanatyam consistently over the last few years under the guidance of the Natyachaaryas, Padmabhushan Sri VP Dhananjayan and Smt Shanta Dhananjayan (Founders of Bharata Kalanjali, Chennai). She was initiated into this form of Natya under the tutelage of Smt Padmini Ramachandran of ‘Natyapriya’ Bangalore. She further trained under the guidance of Smt Shyamala Surendran and Smt Radhika Shurajit - both senior disciples of the Dhananjayans. Shalini has also been trained in Mohiniyattam by Smt Sreedevi Rajan - daughter of the legendary Late Smt Kalamandalam Kalyanikutty Amma. Shalini founded Upahaar School of Dance in 2003 with the sole and sincere purpose of transferring the Indian classical forms of Natya to interested students in an authentic way. She firmly believes that natyam and sangeetham are inherent in everyone and if trained well, these arts inculcate a unique connection within oneself that can result in great joy.
