But today will be different; and the Neelamana Sisters from Kerala promise a Bharatanatyam-Kuchipudi jugalbandhi.
This is Shama's first at the Chidambaram Natyanjali and though she is adept in Bharatanatyam, she chose the Andhra style this evening.
Shama says she teaches both styles at her dance school Shraddha located in Malleswaram North.
And she chose not to do the Natyanjali circuit this time because she has back to back shows in Bangalore.
One themed on five rivers and another curated by Vyjayanthi Kashi for Womens Day.
P. S. : Good to see lots of Bangalore-based dancers featured at the Natyanjali.
