Rama Vaidyanathan is one of the foremost Bharatanatyam dancers of her generation. She trained intensively under the legendary dancer Yamini Krishnamurthy and the celebrated guru Saroja Vaidyanathan. In a career spanning more than 30 years, Rama has developed an individual style based on a strong sense of conviction and an extraordinary flair for choreography that does not forsake the core principles of her dance form. Grounded in tradition, the innumerable dance compositions she has added to the Bharatanatyam repertoire and her latest group work Vivartana demonstrate how her unique thought process pushes boundaries.
