Feel different with my hair ironed! :-) but I like it.... only temporary . My Saturday morning is filled with teaching. I enjoy my time with my little ones ..... and the adults. We don’t need to hurry on saturdays. It’s a beautiful morning.... #love #saturdays #bharatanatyam #raadhakalpa #dance #dancer #children #students
Practice and all is coming ✨ . . This is how I keep checking to see what I can improve. Video of the first attempt at practicing this bit (music added and is different from the original). Need more clarity. More speed. More control. Basically means I need to do it atleast 100 times more 😅 . . . . #dance #dancer #dancevideo #bharatanatyam #raadhakalpa #nityasnritya #nittuwitdances #studiotime #practice #workhard #solo #butgroup #indianclassicaldance #dancersofig #bayarea #video

Grateful for everything today. 🌸 . . Back to life and dancing with myself. They say you never know how many things you take for granted until you don’t have them any more. Was never the case with me. I always realized how lucky i was to have a guru who guides me, pushes me, gives her wealth of knowledge while also letting me explore and grow as my own individual artist. She is also the one who told me that being alone sometimes is good because it helps to get discipline and self motivation in building your own practice. Wish alone wasn’t so far away. Don’t know what I’d do without my @dancerukmini ❤️Probably Photography 😄 . . . . #dance #dancer #bayarea #dancerlife #thankful #grateful #guru #sishya #practice #learning #studio #nityasnritya #metime #alonetime #red #smile #pushpanjali #bayareadancer #raadhakalpa #bharatanatyam #culture #indian #indianclassicaldance #narthanam
There’s no life without conflict. Keeps things fun, interesting and challenging.. A conflict doesn’t necessarily have to mean a fight but here’s one such conflict between Garuda and the Snakes which was so big a fight that it needed divine intervention to stop 😄 Current conflict in my life is that I am in the Airport craving to stuff my face with chocolate but sensibility tells me not to. What’s your conflict today? . . . . #performer #performance #shiva #garuda #snake #shankarabharanam #raadhakalpa #nityasnritya #dance #dancer #indianclassicaldance #indianclassical #dancersofinstagram #solo #art #dancevideo #video #drama #conflict

“The Dark Lord”, by Raadha Kalpa, July 2017 - a dance theater experience that took inspiration from the life and voice of Meera 'the poetess of love'. The story attempted to parallel the struggles, madness, lament and ultimately surrender of these seekers of lord ‘Krishna’. . . . . #thedarklord #shotonfuji #fujifilm #x100f #raadhakalpa #lshvaspace #bengaluru #india @dancerukmini @raadhakalpa @lshvaspace #dance #dancers #bharatanatyam #cntgiveitashot #natgeoyourshot

After two performances on cement stages, 2.15 hrs of exalting lord shiva. My hip flexors feel tight.... so this morning I spent 2.5 hrs doing yoga outside ....hip flexors and organically , back bends . My day feels better when I do yoga. Even when I travel, if my morning is spent without dancing, Yoga, running, I feel irritable. So now my day has started well!! :-) Next two performances tonight at #gangaikondacholapuram and #darasuram With my #raadhakalpa girls #dance #dancer #temple #bharatanatyam #travel #shivaratri #shiva #nataraja #classical #indian #yoga #everyday

Some shows are just about dancing for the sake of dance. Shivaratri obviously had to be one of those.. Was so happy and immersed in my dancing today! :-) . . I think the reason was because I went with no expectations.. Normally I set big expectations out of myself before shows and over analyze after.. I usually feel inadequate about all my performances. Constantly try to find faults and ways to improve. And encourage anybody who can give me constructive criticism.. I strongly believe that this is the right attitude at this stage in my dancing life. That is what pushes me to push myself. But it felt soooooooo good to just switch off the practical part of the mind and be in the moment today. I forgot to wear my chellanga for the first piece. And I was dancing with one half functioning shoulder but none of it mattered. I’m sure if I break down today’s performance I’d find a 1000 faults but I want to selfishly keep the feeling i have now intact. Atleast for a few days 😅 . . . . #shivaratri #sdk #performance #performer #bayarea #bayareadance #bayareadancer #indianclassicaldance #classicaldancer #nityasnritya #raadhakalpa #love #life #happy #dance #motivation #workhard #danceharder #practiceandalliscoming #happiness #celebrate #nataraja #shiva #lord #celebrate #indian #culture

This is one of my favourite moments from “prabhavati’ , a production from #raadhakalpa that I staged about 4.5 years ago. With each year your ideas as a choreographer change and grow. The choices that I made then, are not the choices I would make now. But it is a process. We cannot arrive at where we are if we never start. It is also important to accept change. We change our perceptions, our ideas, thoughts with time. We need to allow that to happen to progress as artists.

Incidentally, I’m on my day off today.

No one prepared me for the joys of seeing my students dance. When they don’t do their best, it makes me upset, sad, inadequate as a teacher. ........when they dance their best, I’m so overwhelmed with pride. But I still ask them to do better. Not because I’m dissatisfied. But because that’s my job. To constantly expect more. I have to expect more of myself and more of them. That’s the only way forward........ thank you dance for inspiring me to be better everyday. #dance #bharatanatyam #students #teaching #growth #joy #growth #potential #raadhakalpa #raadhakalpadancecompany Photo credit: @sunnyjagesar
