Sneha will be presenting Bharatanatyam at this annual festival organised by the New Mexico Dance Coalition.
Sneha Chakradhar is an established name in the new generation of Bharatanatyam dancers. Having pursued the Indian classical dance form for over three decades, she merges her dedicated practice of Bharatanatyam with her deep engagement with music, poetry and the social sciences. Born and raised in New Delhi, Sneha has learnt under legendary Gurus including Kalaimamani Guru K.N. Dakshinamoorthy and Geeta Chandran. Belonging to a family of musicians and litterateurs, Sneha has received immense encouragement and valuable guidance in carving a niche for herself in the invigorating world of the arts.
“Sneha’s assured and well centered movements with strongly etched postures made a convincing curtain-raiser for the description and depiction of Shivahood. Sneha’s Bharatanatyam proficiency combines both the rhythmic and the interpretative.”— Leela Venkataraman
“Interspersed with jathis that enhanced the brilliance of movements, Sneha did full justice to the nritta aspect as well as to abhinaya. The various patterns and the lovely diagonal stretched arms and architectonic beauty of the form were a delight to watch.”— Dr. Sunil Kothari
“Sneha Chakradhar fascinated the audience with her absorbing stage presence, chiselled angashuddhi and consummate abhinaya. Sneha received thunderous applause when she concluded with scintillating Rageshri Thillana.”— Manjari Sinha
