Preethi Ramaprasad is a multidisciplinary dancer and musician who is passionate about the significant role that the arts can have in education, culture, and politics. She has toured and taught dance in India, Europe, and the U.S. A disciple of Professor Sudharani Raghupathy in Bharatanatyam, she is committed to the Indian arts around the world in scholarship and performance. Preethi curates San Francisco’s first Indian choreography festival, When Eyes Speak (a “Critic’s Pick” in the San Francisco Chronicle) with Shruti Abhishek and Sri Thina, and the Varnam Salon with Nadhi Thekkek and Shruti Abhishek both to amplify the multiplicity of voices in Indian dance. Preethi is a doctoral student and graduate teaching assistant in Critical Dance Studies at UC Riverside.
I hope my love for all aspects of art: performance, discussion, and education comes across in these pages. Please reach out for collaborations, presentations, and more!
