Words are not enough to describe the heights Geeta Chandran has reached to since her graduation from Lady Shri Ram College, DU.

A celebrated artist and a star-performer, Geeta Chandran is synonymous with the Indian classical dance: Bharatanatyam. She began learning Bharatanatyam from the tender age of 5 years under the tutelage of Smt. Swarna Saraswathy, who hailed from the traditional Thanjavoor devadasi parampara. Subsequently, Geeta continued learning diverse aspects of the classical dance from a galaxy of eminent Gurus.

Today she is a renowned artist who has synthesized the knowledge she received
from her Gurus to imprint Bharatanatyam with her personal vision of the dance. 
In her dance presentations Geeta Chandran skillfully weaves abstract notions of Joy, 
Beauty, Values, Aspirations, Myth and Spirituality. Geeta is a vocalist trained in Carnatic music , and is an accomplished name in television, video and film, theatre, choreography, dance education, dance activism and dance-issue journalism.

Founder-President of Natya-Vriksha, an organization devoted to promoting Bharatanatyam, Geeta has evolved a holistic style of teaching the classical dance which engages young learners.
