Chatting with dancer K C Rupesh

What is a Goldman Sachs professional doing on the stage at the Chidambaram temple?
Dancing of course!
K C Rupesh leads a busy life at his job but makes time early in the morning to practice Bharatanatyam, being now under guru Chitra Vinoth.

Hailing from Kerala but a true blue Bangalorean, Rupesh, talking to us after a very impressive recital where he got a very warm round of applause in the eastern prakara of the temple here said that he always makes time for dance.

And he prefers to dance solo. "It lets me concentrate completely on the dance and also to relate to my audience," he says.

This was his first Natyanjali and he has the Sunday to unwind before going back to his hectic work calendar.

Watching Rupesh backstage on a CCTV was Mumbai-based guru Kalyanasundaram. And he said it was nice to see a male dancer on stage.

Chidambaram too has seen only a few male dancers. But today's recital showed that if the dance is good people acknowledge it.
