Rukmini Vijayakumar 

Rukmini Vijayakumar is a renowned classical Indian Bharatanatyam Dancer and is the Artistic Director of her Classical Dance Company Raadha Kalpa and Director of her Art Space LshVa.

Rukmini’s style is a summation of all her learning and experiences with her primary training and rigorous practice in Bharatanatyam. Initiated into the form by Guru Padmini Rao, she later pursued a deeper study and understanding of Bharatanatyam under Late Guru Narmada Rao. Her Bharatanatyam practice and ideas of movement are influenced greatly by her training under Guru Sundari Santhanam, in Karanas (the research of Dr. Padma Subramanyam). Her Bharatanatyam practice doesn’t confine itself to a particular style, but more to an aesthetic and dynamic choice that varies from one style to another.
