For most people, the number of times they can watch Rukmini getting married is a function of the number of times Geetha is willing to show it.
Kalasagaram, on the occasion of its 39th Annual Cultural Festival Of Music, Dance And Drama from 24th November to 3rd December, is organising a Bharatanatyam recital by Geetha Ganesan today, the 8th day, at Bhagyalakshmi Kalabhavan in the Keyes Girls' High School.
Geetha Ganesan, along with her troupe of disciples, will be presenting a couple of group items and small ballets, followed by a 90-minute ballet, Rukmini Kalyanam.
Ganesan is a disciple of Guru V S Rama Murthy and Guru Manjula Ramaswamy. She is an accomplished Bharatanatyam dancer, who with her innate talent and years of experience, has matured into one of the finest exponents of Bharatanatyam. She has toured countries like USA, UAE, Norway, Spain, Portugal and Sri Lanka, and performed to packed audiences. She is also a very good choreographer, having designed several solo and group ballets.
She had obtained a Master's degree in performing arts from the University of Hyderabad. She has also been acclaimed as a very good vocalist known for her melodious singing, besides being adept at Nattuvamgam. Along with Jayaprada Ramamurthy, a renowned flautist, Ganesan runs an institution called Uttaraa Centre For Performing Arts in Hyderabad, where they impart flute and Bharatanatyam classes to their students.
