Meenakshy Bhaskar (Choreographer & Performer)
Born into a family of artistes, Meenakshy Bhaskar studied dance at University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point. Upon returning to Singapore, she performed and held the lead roles in several of Bhaskar's Arts Academy's productions including Sita's Complaint, which the company performed at Angkor Wat, Manohra, Rasa and Dhwani and many others. She has performed for dignitaries from all over the world, including her highness, Queen Elizabeth. She was chosen to represent Singapore in Realizing Rama, in ASEAN's tour of South East Asia. Meenakshy's talents have been witnessed all over the world.
In 1996, Meenakshy Bhaskar was granted with the Singapore Young Artiste Award for her contributions and dedication to the Arts in Singapore.
Like her mother, Meenakshy is a gifted choreographer. Because of her diverse background in dances from all over the world, her creations are forever uniquely rooted in Bharathanatyam but subtly influenced by her vast training. She is inspired by rhythm, thus her choreographies always experiment with using unconventional rhythmic patterns. A true visionary, her choreographic style has been demonstrated in her productions of Panchatantra, Vinayaka, Yatra I and Yatra II, and her recent reproduction of Manohra.
Meenakshy Bhaskar is currently the principal of Bhaskar's Arts Academy, California, a branch of Nrityalaya Aesthetics Society. She continues to travel between California and Singapore choreographing original works in both places.

"The beauty of this form is that it is accessible to students of all ages," says Meenakshy Bhaskar, principal teacher and artistic director of the academy. "Children learn basic skills like balance, grace, stamina, strength, coordination, musicality, rhythm, and memory. Teenagers and mature dance students can begin exploring internal emotions (through hand and facial gestures), story-telling skills, and bringing physical grace into movement."
