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.
