Anjana Bhushan [Bharatnatyam Exponent]

Anjana, a virtual blend of talent, beauty and intellect is a trained exponent of Bharatanatyam in the Vazhuvoor style under the tutelage of guru Smt. Padmini Ravi, a name well known in the field of Bharatanatyam. Anjana is the daughter of Sri. B. N. Rama Prasad and Smt. K.S. Nagamani, great patrons of art and culture, who have nourished Anjana's dreams into reality with their constant support towards her education and art.

Anjana performed her arangetram in 1996, with the blessings of her guru Smt Padmini Ravi and Smt. Vasanta Vedam and since then, there has been no looking back for her. Her joy knew no bounds when her dream of getting married to a dancer came true through Anjana Bhushan, who eventually became her husband and her next guru.

Anjana Bhushan, an accomplished dancer, a versatile choreographer, an epitome of creative expertise, who always tries to create something new and unique, has always helped Anjana to explore her talent and bring out her best in the divine art form of Bharatanatyam. In fact, the journey started from their wedding, amidst lots of well wishers, Bharatanatyam exponents and connoisseurs of art, being witness to a rare and historical phenomenon wherein they performed a Bharatanatyam recital before their traditional wedding and exchanged the garlands while enacting out Saint Tyagaraja's composition "Sita Kalyana vybhogame" where Lord Rama gets married to Sita.

With this great start, there has been no looking back for Anjana and Bhushan in their endeavors. Dance to them is devotion and assumes a very prime position in their lives. Together they have choreographed and performed several classical and contemporary presentations like "Mahaganapathim", "Krishna janma sara", "Siddharthaninda Buddhanedege", "Shiva Leelamrutha", "Ambience Kalyani", "Pancha purusha maha drushya sagara" making way to the hearts of several art lovers. Recently they performed at a National Seminar on dance organized by the Confederation of UNESCO Clubs and Associations(CUCAI) held at Mysore and were conferred the title "Nrutya Chandra Chandrika" for their service to the field of Bharatanatyam.

Anjana's pretty stature, aesthetic abhinaya, crisp nritta, profound angashuddha and her precise rhythm sense, create an everlasting impression in the minds and hearts of the audience.

Academically Anjana holds a Masters degree in "Speech and Hearing" from "All India Institute of Speech and Hearing", Mysore and is currently a research scholar, working towards her doctorate in the field of "Stuttering."

With all this and much more to their forte, they are founder directors of their dream venture "Bhushans Academy of Performing Arts and Visual Presentation" established in the year 2005, in the cultural capital of Karnataka, Mysore where they impart the divine knowledge of Bharatanatyam to the aspiring students.
