With her accomplishments as a Bharatanatyam artist and teacher par excellence, Meena has been an important influence on others in maintaining aesthetic values and keeping this tradition alive. Endowed with a good personality, considerable charm, and a consummate knowledge of this divine art, Meena shines amongst the best of our dancers. Her sensitive facial expressions and clean body line, or Angasuddha, speak volumes for her total involvement in this difficult performance art. Meena's dance drama productions are trend setting examples of her professionalism. As one of our ardent disciples, we are proud that Meena is imparting the values she imbibed during several years at the Yogaville Gurukulam, where she has been integral as a devoted and disciplined student. She is undoubtedly one of the best Indian artists, contributing to the development of an Indo-American cultural relationship, and she is a crusader in keeping young generations connected with their culture. Our blessings to Meena to continue her passionate mission in life, to serve in her chosen career as a Bharatanatyam artist and teacher.
