Classical dancer, teacher, and choreographer
I am Manasa Vijaychander, a Chennai-based Classical dancer, choreographer, and teacher with more than 15 years of experience in the dance field. Trained in Bharatanatyam under the guidance of eminent Gurus. Currently learning under Kalaimamani Dr. Radhika Shurajit. I’m also trained in Kathak under the guidance of Smt. Jigyasa Giri, founder of Devaniya, founder school of Dhakshin Gharana of Kathak.
I take both online and offline Bharatanatyam beginner, intermediate, and advanced level dance classes for individuals from all age groups. My dream and intent are to impart knowledge about our ancient art form, preserve it and pass it on to the upcoming generations.
I do group and solo choreographies for a variety of events covering styles such as classical,semi-classical, and Bollywood. I also do paid shows, shoots, and collaborations.
I started dancing at the tender age of four and ever since then haven’t stopped my dancing feet from doing what it’s been doing for any reason whatsoever it be. The reason being I haven’t let the fire in me fade even once and dancing has always given me joy and has got me back to bounce.
Gave my debut solo performance (Arangetram) when I was 9 years old in 2009. Won several awards and prizes in renowned sabhas, festivals, and competitions. Have taken part and even placed in TV shows like “Thaka Dhimi Tha” in Jaya TV, “Konjum Salangai” in Podhigai TV, and many other channels like Vijay tv, Mega TV, Vasanth TV, etc.
Did my schooling in Vidya Mandir Senior Secondary School and completed my under graduation in D.G.Vaishnav College. Due to my boundless love and passion for dance, I decided to do it professionally and turned it into my career. I have done more than 150 stage performances so far as part of the dance schools I’ve been a part of.
Apart from dance, I enjoy listening to music, playing Sudoku, stalking other artists on social media and their works, and watching multiple language movies and web series on OTT platforms. One major hobby I developed during the quarantine was making videos for my Instagram handle. It’s completely conceptualized, visualized, and choreographed by me. Experimenting with new choreographies has always been my most favorite thing to do. If you are a dancer yourself and would love to work/collaborate with me reach out to me on Instagram and let’s create some magic!
