Join Guest Artist Subashini Ganesan - Forbes in an exploration of the technical building blocks - rhythmic footwork, hand, and facial gesture, and emotive qualities of Bharatanatyam, the oldest of the classical Indian Dance forms.

Subashini is a curator, arts administrator, choreographer, and former Creative Laureate of Portland (2018 – June 2021). As a Bharathanatyam artist, Ganesan has been learning, teaching, performing, and presenting this art form for over four decades. She founded Natya Leela Academy in 2008, where she teaches and explores universal expressions of Bharathatyam. Subashini founded New Expressive Works (N.E.W.) in 2012. Through residencies, artist conversations, and performance seasons, this vibrant performing arts venue celebrates bold new works created by multicultural independent performing artists.
