Join us for two amazing workshops with one of the world- leaders in Uday Shankar dance technique.
Tanusree trained in Bharatnatyam, Kathakali and Manipuri, three different classical dance forms, along with the Uday Shankar style, under the tutelage of Mrs Amala Shankar, her Guru and mentor. She has developed a kind of choreography, which reaches out to audiences worldwide. Her choreography is not a combination of classical dances, but is outstanding and original, based on the “Shankar technique”, following the path shown by Uday Shankar.
