Bharatanatyam Academy

Celebrating 25 years of Bharatanatyam classes!


Our Bharatanatyam Academy offers the very best quality accredited ISTD training in the classical Indian dance style Bharatanatyam.

This beautiful and dramatic dance style tells the stories of Indian mythology through hand gestures, footwork, facial expressions and neck and head movements.

To celebrate our anniversary, we’re offering 25 places in both our classes at the reduced rate of just £10 per Intermediate class and £7 per Beginners class – saving you a third! New students enrolled on the Beginners class can get the first month FREE!*

Classes are open to people of all abilities and backgrounds. Why not join us this Autumn to be a part of the next generation of Bharatanatyam dancers!

Bharatanatyam Teacher – Santosh Kumar Menon

Santosh Kumar, also known by his stage name as Santosh Menon, is an alumnus of Kalakshetra College of Fine Arts in Chennai India, where he became a guest artist and teacher after completing his post-graduation in Bharatanatyam. He was a visiting scholar at Hong Kong University for three years before moving to the UK.

Santosh Kumar established the Kshetra Dance Company in the UK to promote the traditional Kalakshetra style of Bharatanatyam and to provide training in a more refined way to all age groups. He teaches Bharatanatyam in London, Leeds, Bradford, Halifax, Scarborough, Salisbury and Worcester. He prepares dance students for various grades of the ISTD exams in Bharatanatyam and helps students prepare for their Arangetram (dance graduation).

Besides Bharatanatyam, Santosh Kumar also provides training in other Indian classical dance and music, such as: Kuchipudi, Mohiniattam, Carnatic vocals and Nattuvangam.
