I have been a part of Pushpanjali Dance Academy since I was 6 years old. Meena Aunty was my very first dance teacher and dance classes have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. What I love most about learning from Meena Aunty is the passion she brings forth when teaching us. It motivates me to work harder and maintain my relationship with dance even after I left for college. I also personally love the Vazhuvoor dance style and I think Meena Aunty is an extremely talented choreographer- all of the pieces I have learned are interesting to me both as a dancer and a viewer. From the strong foundations in adavus and basics to the creative padams and folk dances, being a part of Pushpanjali has given me the tools to continue with Bharatanatyam for the rest of my life.
