Pranitha Kamat

Indian classical dancer

I am an Indian classical dancer, a Scientist and an Educator. A professional dance for the past  18 years, my goal is to introduce people of all ages to the basic aspects of Indian Classical dance. To engage them with the art of body language and expression, so they can experience the dance.

My passion in Science and Bharatanatyam defines me. I find broad synergies between the two fields. My work involves applying scientific approaches to Indian dance and artistic visualization in science.
I love books, chai and nature. When combined together, I am in bliss!

At the festival I will give a workshop for children and families based on my book on hand gestures. The Participants will learn different hand gestures and learn how to to put them in relation to their surroundings, in order to finally to tell stories.
