Radhika Shetty, is a highly endowed and promising artiste, who was introduced into the consecrated art form of Bharatanatyam at an early age of nine under the able guidance of Vidushi Smt. Sharadamani Shekhar of Sri Sanathana Natyalaya, Mangalore.

Over the years, Bharatanatyam has become the basic essence and spirit in Radhika’s life and her passion for distinction, is quite visibly established in her sincere efforts to pursue this dance form with utmost care, reverence and dedication.

In her keen interest for learning the depths and diversities of the consecrated dance form, she completed her Rangapravesha under the guidance and direction of the honored Guru Smt. Padmini Ramachandran of Natyapriya, Bangalore.

She is taking advanced lessons from Sri. Muralidhar Rao & Vidushi Smt. Sharadamani Shekhar in Mangalore.

Radhika has learnt, performed this art form for over 15 years & with sheer perseverance and intense dedication has gracefully blossomed into a soulful performer.
