About Manaswini Balakumar

At the tender age of nine, during her Arangetram, Manaswini had the rare privilege of  being blessed by the Great Danseuse Naattiya Peroli Padmini   when she said she could see a ”Little Shobana” in her.

Endowed with a sprightly stage presence, Manaswini Sridhar Balakumar brings to her audience a refreshing presentation of Bharathanatyam, exhibited through her strong sense of rhythm, scintillating nritta and lively abhinaya.

Her abilities were recognized very early and she has been the recipient of numerous awards at both interschool and  intercollegiate levels, apart from having won all round appreciation and accolades from the press and public.

On one of her Bharatanatyam performances during chennai music season, THE HINDU said, “With single minded focus, Manaswini quickly established herself as a dancer with excellent timing.expressive face, supple body, her natural stage persona translated into easy and effective elaborations” .
