Rama Vaidyanathan

November 3

A gem in her native India, Rama Vaidyanathan is one of the world’s leading interpreters of Bharata Natyam, the great classical dance form of southern India that’s characterized by complex footwork, abstract movements and elaborate mime. With a distinct style that melds tradition and her 20 years of expertise, she is renowned as the “thinking dancer.” With every stamp, turn and pose, Vaidyanathan, beautifully accompanied by several accomplished musicians, will enthrall with “fire power and ebullience, athleticism and rhythmic prowess” (The Hindu, Delhi).
