Deepa, a passionate Bharatanatyam dancer and Nrityanjali Title awardee hails from Coimbatore, considered one of the traditional roots of India. She has always identified the art of dance as her companion, healer, and stress-buster. She has also explored the varied art forms including Odissi, Kathak, Salsa, Hip-hop, Zumba, Freestyle dance, Semi-classical Contemporary, body awareness Yoga and different folk dances of India. She has experienced the therapeutic nature of this gifted art form firsthand. Her love for art and the therapeutic effect of dance drew her close to know more about Heartdancers' ‘Rhythm Is Life’
program. From ‘Rhythm is Life’ participant to facilitating Rhythm Is Life sessions at Heartdancers is a huge learning curve. Deepa is also a veteran Software Engineer of 4 years. She is quite passionate about social causes and has volunteered for the Indian NGO ‘Make a Difference’ for 6 years. She is currently Heartdancers' secretary, cultural educator and has performed at various Heartdancers programs and events, including the children's online program developed as a responsive session during COVID-19.
