Instructor Bio
Dhanvini Gudi has been learning and practicing Bharatanatyam for the last 23 years, specifically, Kalakshetra, which originated in Chennai in the 1930s. She has performed in dance festivals in India, Canada, and the USA and, more recently, over the last few years, she has been teaching Bharatanatyam with a focus on introducing it to non-Indian beginners. As someone who has grown up learning and performing this artform, she is excited to share with people who are unfamiliar with it and invite them on a journey into the world of storytelling using their whole body.
