        Hi Anjali,
        I had learnt bharatanatyam for 3 years when i was in school. But had to quit it due to health problems. I used to perform western dances in school, but learning bharatanatyam has always been a desire. I am 22 now and wanted to start learning all over again. Now I am studying abroad and do not have any training available nearby. I have started with the basics and your website is proving to be really resourceful.
        Thank you very much and keep up the good work.
