Rama Vaidyanathan is one of India’s leading classical dancers. She is considered as one of the best interpreters of the ancient art form of Bharata Natyam. She has been fortunate to have trained intensively under the legendry dancer Yamini Krishnamurty. Rama has also been under the guidance of the eminent Guru Saroja Vaidyanathan.

Everyone who has seen Rama perform is struck by her unique thought process and fresh approach to dance. While deeply routed in tradition. She has evolved her own individual style without forsaking the core principles of Bharata Natyam.

Rama has been performing professionally for the past twenty years and is one of the most sought after dancers of her generation. She brings to her dance a rare sense of devotion and dedication, which leaves the audience with a sense of spiritual fulfillment.

In SRUTI, India’s premiere magazine for the performing arts, noted dance critic Leela Venkataraman writes, “The dancer’s fluency in negotiating space, her intutive ability for well- crafted and nuanced choreography with a sense of ‘belonging ‘ with the theme and a feel for asthetics are all factors to reckon with.”

Daniel wrote his first dance review after feeling compelled to articulate why Rama Vaidyanathan’s performance at Kalakshetra moved him so much. Read Daniel’s blog post here.
