I'm Naveena Muthukrishnan, Indian classical dancer practicing bharatnatyam.

I've been associated with bharatanatyam for 18+ years now. I started learning dance from age of 3 in Shanmuganandha Dance School under Shri. Hemnath Shanmugam and did my salanga pooja under him at the age of 6. Later on, I joined in Nrithyodaya and got the opportunity of getting trained by Dr. Padma Subrahmanyam herself and performed my Arangetram under her guidance.

I'm also a Computer Science Engineer graduated from MIT. I live in Chennai, India.
