‘When absolutely everything around us is changing, why do we expect dance to be static?’: Bharatanatyam exponent Geeta Chandran
Bharatanatyam exponent Geeta Chandran on how classical dance forms have evolved over the years, what's special this World Dance Day and much more.
Padma Shri Geeta Chandran was just five-years-old when she took her first step towards Bharatnatyam. Today, she is a renowned artist and a name to reckon with. Not only a trained Bharatanatyam exponent, she is also trained in Carnatic music and is recognised for her work in theatre, dance, and even videos and films. Chandran, who is the artistic director of the NatyaVriksha Dance Company, celebrates World Dance Day (April 29) with a line-up of activities every year.
