Bharatanatyam is not just a fine art, it’s a way of life, and it’s our link to 5000 years of civilization. This dance form is kaleidoscope of India’s mythology, music, spirituality and languages.
Komal Khadse happens to be a passionate proponent of Bharatanatyam. Currently a disciple of Guru Smt. Tejaswini Lele, she started her journey as a danseuse at the age of 5. Eventually she found immense joy and satisfaction in dance and music. It was her persistent practice and unwavering discipline that helped her pursue her dance parallely with her school studies. Komal performed Arangetram in class 10th (Arangetram is an on-stage performance of dance, and marks a graduation of sorts since it’s performed in full strength in front of other dance proponents and family & friends).
Although a masters of commerce, Komal prides herself in being a Masters in Fine Art (M.F.A) in Bharatanatyam. She finds her spiritual satisfaction in teaching the classical dance form to her students through her newly formed dance academy. Currently Komal is training for Carnatic vocal music under Smt. Lakshmi Parthasarthy.
Komal is not just a passionate danseuse but a custodian of a traditional Indian art. Her reverence for the culture, her appreciation of profound impact of art on lifestyle and her constant effort to propagate it to others makes her story motivational in true sense.
