Description

This classical Bharatnatyam performance will focus on the vibrancy of this ancient art form as seen through the eyes of a young artist. The foot movements are a crucial part of Bharatnatyam and in this repertoire Ritu will exhibit agile and graceful movements (jathis and gathis) along with beautiful expressions (abhinaya). Most of the dance pieces will include story telling (sancharis) as part of the performance.

Ritu Raj is a young London based Bharatnatyam Artist who had the rare privilege of performing at the famous Chennai Music festival in December 2018 .She was invited by the renowned Mylapore Fine Arts and Global Heritage Music Festival in Chennai and the well-known Asthika Samaj and Chembur Fine Arts in Mumbai for multiple performances at the end of last year.

Ritu Raj spent 13 years learning this ancient dance form in London. She consistently pursued this beautiful art under the tutelage of Usha Raghavan and has given several performances in the UK including at the first ever Radha Madhav Kalyana Mahotsav held in London. She supports Mitraseva a North London based charity through her regular performances. Ritu is an undergraduate student at the University of Bath and runs a society to promote Indian Culture at the University.
