BIOGRAPHY

I am Arathi Unni aged 18. I have been learning classical dance forms since I was five years old. My first guru was Kalamandalam Chandrika, who was one of the first students at the Kerala Kalamandalam. I am currently doing my BSc in Physics, Chemistry and Maths at St Joseph's college, Bangalore. I have been participating for the School Kalolsavams held every year in Kerala since I was 9 years old and have won a lot of prizes. Bharathanatyam - I started learning Bharathanatyam since I was five years old under Kalamandalam Chandrika. I did my Arangettram when I was six years old and continue to perform and compete in various occasions. I also had the opportunity to learn under Kalamandalam Vinodini, Calicut, Kerala for four years. Kuchipudi - I was introduced to Kuchipudi by my guru, Kalamandalam Vinodini when I was 13 years old. I also learned Kuchipudi under Mrs. Aswathi Srikanth, daughter of the infamous Kalamandalam Saraswathi teacher and the exceptional Malayalam writer MT Vasudevan Nair. Keralanadanam - I have been learning Keralanadanam under Kalamandalam Sathyavrathan Sir for three years. I participated in the Kalolsavam in these years and I came in second in the State level Kalolsavam consecutively for two years. ( 2014 and 2015 ). Nangyarkooth - Painkulam Narayana Chakyar is my guru and I have been learning Nangyarkooth for four years. In the State Kalolsavam held at Trivandrum in the year 2016, I secured first place for Nangyarkooth. In the years before, I secured second place in the State Kalolsavams. Mohiniyattom - Kalamandalam Kavitha Krishnakumar is my guru and I started learning Mohiniyattom in 2015. I have enjoyed performing and learning this art form, and I also secured A grade for Mohiniyattom in the State Kalolsavam held last year (2016). I performed recently as part of Bharatholsavam 2018. It would give me immense pleasure to be blessed with opportunities to perform again.
