Surabhi Bharadwaj: Classical Indian Dance Artist
Bharatanatyam is an Indian classical dance form originated in southern India by Devadasis 2000 years ago. Creating beauty using the movements of the body forming geometric patterns and the dynamic energy caused by the rhythmic footwork, Bharatanatyam also serves the expression of religious and social themes. Surabhi Bharadwaj is a seasoned Bharatanatyam artist whose versatility and uniqueness has wowed audiences and won her many plaudits across the globe. She is the Founder and Artistic Director of Siddhi Dance Academy established in Dublin, California, with an aim to motivate young minds towards classical art. She also founded Yokayam™, a comprehensive strengthening program that combines Yoga, Kalaripayattu (Indian Martial Art), and Bharatanatyam. She continues to teach Yokayam as a course at Saint Mary's College of California and conducts workshops across the USA to introduce these art forms to a global audience.
