Sharanya offers dance lessons to build a foundation in the Indian classical Bharatanatyam dance style. Choreographed pieces encourage students to blend traditional movements with classical music, a great motivation for today’s youth. Classes focus on training all ages to blend rhythm, beats and expressions with artful foot, hand, and body movements — essential to all dance styles.
Rashi Narain is a Bharatanatyam dancer and choreographer based in Silver Spring, Maryland. She previously trained with Rani David from Kalairani Natya Salai for nearly two decades, and currently pursues her study with Nalini Prakash in the Pandanallur style of Bharatanatyam. Rashi also studies classical Hindustani vocal music with Shubhashish Mukherjee to augment her practice and performance of classical Indian dance.
Sharanya encourages students and staff to participate in public events, as well as support the artistic community by attending shows and concerts.
