The Full Story
Born into a family with a long lineage of traditional performing arts, it was natural for Swarnadeepa to take to the classical arts. She was initiated into dance at an early age and was gradually drawn towards Mohiniyattam, the cause her mother and Guru T. Shankaranarayanan has come to become synonymous with. It is this artistic legacy, a commitment to the cause of Mohiniyattam that Swarnadeepa has imbibed.
