Janani was captivated with Bharatanatyam when she was just 6, compelling her parents to enroll her in dance class at a very young age. In 1995, after a short tutelage with Guru Smt Padmini Ravi, she transitioned to the “THE KIRANS” – Kiran Subramanyam and Sandhya Kiran. She started performing and teaching under their guidance, ultimately doing her Arangetram in 2000.

After her marriage, she moved to one of best places in the United States for Indian arts – San Francisco Bay Area. She continued her Bharatanatyam training and mentoring from internationally acclaimed Guru Smt Vidhya Subramanian of Lasya Dance Company. She performed at Lasya’s productions for over a decade and has performed in prestigious festivals such as San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival.

With the finest coaching from distinguished Gurus of leading Banis (styles) such as Kalakshetra and Vazhuvoor. Janani now performs, choreographs and teaches to young kids and adults at her dance school Nrityakalya Dance Company. Janani has directed and staged 4 full-length dance drama productions. Janani also gets her advance training from master classes conducted by senior artists such as Guru Smt Rama Vaidyanathan, Guru Smt Lavanya Ananth, and Guru Sri A Lakshmanaswamy.

Janani has chosen to challenge herself in other creative and expressive pursuits: She has been a participant in NAATAK, Silicon valley’s Award winning theater group. Janani also enjoys painting and is an active artist among Bay area art clubs. She frequently displays her art works at exhibitions and galleries.
