More about Nandini:

Nandini Krishna is an accomplished performing artiste of Bharata Natyam Indian classical dance.

Trained under renowned master teachers, she strives to maintain the balance of traditional aspects and essence of the dance form blending modern thought in choreography and presentation, in the fast-changing milieu of society today.

Over the years, she has collaborated with diverse art forms and artistes both at home-in India, and abroad.

As teacher with a varied experience, she imparts and links traditional aspects to modernity.

As an able arts administrator she has initiated numerous and meaningful arts projects.

As free-lance journalist she has contributed to important magazines, newspapers and classical music and dance journals.

She believes in what her Guru strove to instill in her- that one must convey the art simply without undue frills, staying on course. It is easy to get carried away. But to hold on to the essence, whether in performance or creation is difficult. It means to strive to keep the’sthayi bhava’. The stillness, the repose, the pause that is ever so fleeting.

Dance is the sum, is the struggle, is the joy, of maintaining the stillness in movement, the calm in the frenzy, and the mid-point in the middle of paradoxes!

Thus it is with her to maintain the fine balance of tradition and modernity.
