An epitome of Grace and Élan, Archana truly lives up to the brigade of ‘New Age’ Dancers, having rendered performances to Best of Both Worlds – Art Connoisseurs and Corporate Crème de la Crème. Her credentials of being a Post Graduate in Bharatanatyam from the renowned institute of Kalakshetra (Rukmini Arundale’s Kalakshetra College of Fine Arts, Chennai) as well as being a Management Graduate from Xavier Vignana Jyothi Institute of Management, Hyderabad, led her to believe that Dance is not only an eloquent art form but is also an effective tool to explain corporate doctrines.
With numerous significant performances up her sleeve right as a student in Kalakshetra and through her own Academy Manjeeram, Archana is a pioneer in conceptualizing ‘Leadership in Dance’, Satyam’s School of Leadership honored Archana, with the FLCL (Full Life Cycle Leader) Award. ‘Personality Development through Dance’ and ‘Spandhan – The Sixth Element’ are feathers in her cap of delivering traditional concepts with a new dimension of content whilst keeping the technique intact.
Founder Secretary of Manjeeram Academy of Fine Arts, Sainikpuri, Secunderabad, Archana believes that Dance can work as a catalyst in developing peace, and balance in today’s chaotic and imbalanced environment as it is not just an art form but an art with the ability to convey beyond words; it is an everyday’s experience of living - Living to the moment in it…..with it!
