IAAC - Srinidhi Raghavan

Srinidhi Raghavan

Srinidhi Raghavan started learning Bharatanatyam nearly thirty years ago and has performed globally over the decades. Born into a family of dancers, she was exposed to Bharatanatyam early on and formally started learning the art from her mother and guru, Usha Raghavan, and from guru, Malathy Thothadri at the tender age of four. She had her arangetram in Chennai in 1998 and her experiences with dance have spanned several cultures and countries, including those of the UK, Switzerland, France, Italy, Liechtenstein, Barbados, Canada, the US and of course India, during the prestigious December festivals in Chennai.

Known for her “precise nritta and apt abhinaya”, she is also recognized for her innovative choreographies and original works, which often explore contemporary themes via traditional Bharatanatyam pieces. Srinidhi’s wide and extended exposure has added an eclectic element to her delivery which, when combined with her traditional style, results in a unique reflection of elegance and experience.

Srinidhi is a graduate of Columbia University and The Wharton School. She lives and works in New York City and continues to produce and curate shows while also choreographing and performing in her own productions. She currently sits on the curatorial board of The Indo American Arts Council’s Erasing Borders Festival, and is also the co-curator of The Varnam Salon (NYC).
