She is the disciple of late Guru Hemamalini Arni, who carries the rare legacy of having learnt from doyens, T. Balasaraswati (Padma Bhushan Awardee) and Vazhuvoor Ramaiah Pillai (Padma Shri Awardee), who need no introduction in the world of Indian classical dance. Currently, Kiranmayee is learning from senior dancer Smt. Indira Kadambi.

Kiranmayee has performed in India and abroad including UK, France, Germany, Hungary, Russia & Sri Lanka and been part of major dance festivals all over India. She is the founder of ‘Hema Arangam – The Golden Platform’, which offers Bharatanatyam & Vocal lessons and promotes performing and visual arts through innovative initiatives.

Kiranmayee is an IT Engineer by education and she also worked in a multinational company for two years. She quit the fast lane to take up Bharatanatyam full time, owing to her passion for the art. She is also a Carnatic vocalist, an accomplished painter and a graphic designer among other things.

She regularly works for SPICMACAY, an international NGO. She has conducted workshops for underprivileged children in rural Rajasthan, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. She also performed for their prestigious Virasat Series concert ’17.

She was invited by TED talks to speak about her journey in dance. She also assisted her Guru at The Music Academy, Madras in their annual academic sessions by singing and dancing padams as part of Balasaraswati’s centennial celebrations. This was later awarded the best session of the season. 

Kiranmayee had the honour of taking part twice in 2014 & 2016 in Naada Neerajanam – Tirupati, programmes. She has performed across the length and breadth of the country and on various platforms and has been bestowed with many awards too.

Her production ‘Porous Earth’ traces the journey of a river through Bharatanatyam and English poetry. It was conceptualized by her Guru Hemamalini Arni, based on a poem by Tejdeep Kaur Menon, an Indian Police Service (IPS) Officer. It has been staged at various national and international avenues. Another production, ‘Stories of the Soil’ is a unique presentation bringing the art of Abhinaya and story-telling together. It brings forth astonishing tales of Tamil folklore and addresses various burning issues of the society like untouchability, discrimination and caste system. This was presented at the Hyderabad Literary Festival in 2017.

Your thought is outstanding; the difficulty is something that not enough individuals are speaking intelligently about.

  10. The heart of your writing while sounding reasonable at first, did not really sit properly with me after some time. Somewhere within the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a while. I still have got a problem with your jumps in logic and one might do well to help fill in all those gaps. If you actually can accomplish that, I would undoubtedly end up being fascinated.
