Akshaya Renuka

Faculty ( Bengaluru Branch)

Mrs. Akshaya Renuka was born in Udumalaipetai in Coimbatore. She completed her schooling in the Government Girls Higher Secondary School in Chennai. She later went on to graduate by securing a Bachelors Degree in Microbiology (B.Sc) from New Prince Shri Bhavani Arts and Science college in Chennai. Akshaya has always been passionate about Bharatanatyam and is quiet fluent in the principles Bharatanatyam holds value to.  


Under the tutelage of her Guru, Smt. Arundhati John, Akshaya was able to quickly adpat to the form of Kalakshetra style Bharatnatayam and present them at various classical dance events. In 2019, Akshaya went on to successfully complete her Arangetram at the  Bharatiya Vidhya Bhavan in Mylapore, Chennai.


Akshaya’s dedication to the art has overcome all restrictions and the outcome is due to the support from her three beautiful daughters, loving husband, her undying passion, self-motivation and dedication towards Bharatanatyam. Akshaya explores her creativity without compromising on the classicism of the dance form. Akshaya’s graceful movements and  her subtle yet communicative expressions have won the admiration of students and her Guru. As a teacher, Akshaya devotes her time and energy into developing a new generation of dancers who are dedicated to Bharatanatyam, keeping up the Kalakshetra values taught to her by her Guru.  As a revered dance institute,  we are very proud to have her as a faculty and we look forward to her positive contribution in the field of Indian classical dance form Bharatanatyam at our branch centre in Bengaluru, India. 


Jathika Chandran is a talented dancer hailing from Calicut, a city in the southern Indian state of Kerala. She has been honing her skills in dance for the past 18 years under the guidance of her father, Guru Chandran Pariyaram, who comes from an artistic family. Apart from being proficient in Bharatanatyam, Jathika has also completed her graduation in Mohiniyattam from RLV College, Tripunithura, Cochin.


Jathika's passion for dance has led her to study under various gurus, including her father, who has taught her Kuchipudi, Mohiniyattam, and Bharatanatyam. She has showcased her talent in many prestigious dance festivals across India and won several awards, including Natya Manjira and Natyamayukha awards in Bharatanatyam. In 2018, she received the Best Performer Award from her college.


Jathika has also been actively involved in promoting the art of dance in her native place as well as in Bangalore and Dubai. Currently, she is a disciple of Guru Smt. Arundhati S. John and serves as a faculty member in the Nritta Dhyana department. Jathika's dedication to dance and her continuous pursuit of excellence in this art form make her an inspiration to aspiring dancers all over the world.


As a faculty member at Nritta Dhyana, we are pleased to have Jathika Chandran onboard, and we are excited to collaborate with her in promoting the art of dance. Additionally, we are delighted to introduce Mohiniyattam as a course at our school, which is available to anyone who wishes to learn this traditional Indian dance form.
