B. Ramesh ( formerly UMA BALASUBRAMANIAN) started learning Bharatanatyam at the age of five from the late guru K. J. Govindarajan, in New Delhi.

Since her Arangetram in 1981 she never looked back. In her pursuit towards attaining perfection she underwent further training under guru Smt. S. Kanaka, also in New Delhi.

She is A Top-Grade Artist with Doordarshan and also an empanelled artist in the ESTABLISHED CATEGORY with Indian Council for Cultural Relations(ICCR), New Delhi.

She has performed at several prestigious festivals and venues in India and abroad. She is currently getting trained in Abhinaya by Smt. Bragha Bessel. Uma performs, teaches, choreographs and holds workshops.

It is a means for me to communicate. It is something very sacred and special. Through dance I feel connected to divinity. Several times while dancing, I feel I cease to exist and it is only the rythm and the ragam which are alive.

I prefer giving only solo-programmes as the empty canvas, provided by any song or rythmic piece, can be filled with the colours of my creativity, something over which i will have total control.

I would love to make my dance reach out to all. HAPPINESS IS . . . . If, after my show is over, the audience goes back with the message that I have tried to convey, deeply embedded in their hearts.
