In your own words, what is your ethnic identity? (for individuals)
Your Artistic Background/Mission
Malini Srinivasan and Dancers is a group committed to presenting new works stemming from and expanding the tradition and technique of Bharatanatyam, the classical dance from south India. The group creates and performs works that explore new relationships between artists and audiences through movement, music and stories.
Your Creative Influences
My creative influences began with my mother Radha Srinivasan and grandmother Komalavali Mani, who were my first dance teachers, and now my Guru Sri C.V. Chandraskhar. My other influences include choreographers Chandralekha and Padmini Chettur.
