About Janaki Rangarajan
At the forefront of the new generation of Bharatanatyam dancers, "Nadanamamani" Dr. Janaki Rangarajan represents the future of the ancient art form. Since the age of 4, Janaki has been passionate about communicating through dance. Her unique dance style is a sincere result of her undying passion, self-motivation and dedication towards Bharatanatyam. Her refreshing approach to Bharatanatyam has won her many accolades and praise from dance lovers around the world. Being a firm believer in maintaining the integrity of tradition, Janaki explores her creativity without compromising on the classicism of the dance form. Janaki's journey in Bharatanatyam commenced at the age of four under the tutelage of Smt. Madhavi Chandrasekhar in Trichy, India. At the age of seven, Janaki came under the guidance of Dr. Padma Subrahmanyam in Chennai, India with whom she studied for the next 17 years. During the last few years, Janaki has also had the privilege of interacting with extraordinary Bharatanatyam choreographers, teachers and senior artists. Janaki's immaculate and graceful movements and her subtle yet communicative expressions have won the admiration of laymen and connoisseurs alike. Critics around the world have given her rave reviews and described Janaki as an "absolutely brilliant performer", "one of the best today," "stunning" and "exemplary". The New York Times hailed her performance as a "spellbinder."Janaki's performances have taken her across the globe. She tours with new choreographic works and conducts workshops. In addition to being an accomplished dancer, Janaki is a gifted dance choreographer. She has received many accolades of national and international acclaim which recognize her excellence as a performer and is the co-founder of Kalashraya, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and protection of Indian classical arts. Every year, Janaki organizes and co-curates the Kalashraya Dance Festival which presents some of the leading younger soloists in the Indian classical dance scene. One of Janaki's passions is supporting organizations that dedicate themselves to the protection and education of children in India. Through an annual dance event, "Arpana," Janaki raises funds to support various deserving organizations. As a teacher, Janaki devotes time and energy into developing a new generation of dancers who are dedicated to Bharatanatyam. Janaki trained in Carnatic (South Indian) vocal music and Veena (South Indian string instrument) music under the tutelage of Smt. Kamala Viswanathan and has received advanced vocal training with Sri.
