Sahasra Sambamoorthi’s unique approach to bharatanatyam comes from the combination of her Vazhoor style training from Smt. Kalaimamani Ramya Ramnarayan and many years of training in ballet and gymnastics. Her approach to the body becomes one based on muscle alignment and strength that come through from her gymnastics, precision and exacting physics of the body from ballet, and an individual technical approach from bharatanatyam. She has been teaching since she was 15, first at the Nrithyanjali Institute of Dance, then with individual students through her early 20s and college, helping her dance troupe Columbia Taal train, and finally, at Navatman. She continues to train under Bijayini Satpathy, Pavithra Reddy and Surupa Sen at Nrityagram in Odissi, Kishore Mosalikanti in Kuchipudi, and Kathak under Prashant Shah.
