Today, on Vijaya Dasami, we remember every student who has walked through those doors and cherish all the precious memories we have of each of our students.

Sai Pushpa Kondapaneni (better known as Shiny to all of us) started taking Bharatanatyam lessons with Kausi Subramaniam when she was 5 years old. She is now 16 and has continued her lessons with dedication and hard work over the years. Shiny is a joy to teach and the respect and love she has for her gurus Kausi and Ramya Karthic are unmatched.

Shiny created this Venn Diagram to compare and contrast the Ashta-Nayikas. The Ashta-Nayika is a collective name for eight types of nayikas or heroines as classified by Bharata in his Sanskrit treatise on performing arts - Natya Shastra. The eight nayikas represent eight different states in relationship to her hero or nayaka.

[08/10/20]   Six year old Divyasri Thanigachalam (student of Kausi Subramaniam) is participating in the San Antonio Tamil Sangam’s virtual talent show. (This dance was choreographed for Divyasri for the talent show by Sangeetha Sundaram.)
