Ashwarya Samkaria

I am a shishya of renowned Odissi dancer Guru Madhumita Raut, and of Padma Shri Guru Mayadhar Raut, the doyen of Odissi dance. I started learning Odissi in 2014 and follows the Mayadhar Raut Paddhati which is celebrated the world over for its lyrical grace and its sanchari-based intense abhinaya. A Masters in English Literature from Hans Raj College, Delhi University, I wish to excel as an Odissi dancer. I have been performing in Delhi, and recently performed at Indira Gandhi National Tribal University at Amarkantak, Madhya Pradesh.
