ChitraKaavya Dance was founded by Srilatha Singh, to explore her abiding interest in Bharatanatyam. She has learnt from eminent gurus Shri Dhananjayan, Guru Kalyani Shekhar and Ambica Buch, in her youth. In 2015, ChitraKaavya Dance was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. They are interested in performing their traditional repertoire as well as collaborating to create new and interesting dance items that can be relevant, accessible and add to the rich tapestry of Dance in the Salt Lake Valley. They would like to foster innovation and excellence in this dance form, and nurture inter-cultural conversations using the medium of performing arts.
