Shri kalaivani natyalaya dance academy was founded in 2003 by deepa s(iyer) vanadate, with the vision of sharing the beauty and depth of Bharatanatyam, the oldest and most widely performed classical dance tradition of India through education, outreach and performance. Adhering to the tandoor style of Bharatanatyam, which is known for its geometry and precision of technique, subtle expressional dance, and keen sense of aesthetics, shire kalaivani natyalaya looks to expand creativity within the framework of this exquisite dance form, retaining its traditional roots while contributing to its evolution as a "living" performance art. Shri kalaivani naytalaya offers an equal opportunity to all age groups. The students age vary from 4 year old blooming buds to older, married women. Our institution has students from myriad backgrounds. Our academy has grown from strength to strength over the years and has performed in many cities across the country. Time and again we have been invited to perform at programmes and conferences of many corporate organisations and noteworthy institutions.
