Sneha Chakradhar

Natya Vriksha in Chile, South America

In October 2017, I got the opportunity to travel with my guru Smt. Geeta Chandran and the Natya Vriksha Dance Company to travel to Chile, South America to celebrate the 70th year of Indian independence through Bharatanatyam under the aegis of the Ministry of Culture, Government of India and Indian Council for Cultural relations (ICCR).

We presented choreographies in Bharatanatyam in Santiago de Chile and San Antonio and conducted a workshop for dance students at the university in Santiago. Both the performances were very well received by the Chilean audiences, who showered us with their kind words of appreciation and standing ovations. The natural beauty, the colourful graffiti and the vibrant culture of Chile will remain forever in our hearts.
