Travel back in time and revel in the glory of one of the most ancient dance forms ever. Prepare to be enthralled by riveting classical Indian dance at its very best culminating into a visual and musical treat. Prepare for Aananda - The Dance of Joy.

Through the beautiful Indian Classical dance forms of Bharatanatyam and Kuchupudi, Swaroopa Unni takes her audiences on a mystical and spellbinding journey back into the life and times of Lord Krishna. Explore the technical nuances and powerful enactment of ancient Hindu mythological stories and journey along with her in discovering Aananda - The Dance of Joy. Beginning her recital by paying respects to cosmic dancer, Lord Shiva and the ever-benevolent Lord Ganesha, the entire repertoire has been choreographed beautifully keeping the culturally vibrant Dunedin in mind.

Performing for the first time in Dunedin, Swaroopa is considered to be one of the emerging young artists from India and is known for her fresh approach to dance. By taking the rich traditions of Bharatanatyam classical dance and adding her own unique flair in choreography, her dance is empathetic, fresh and inimitable. Performing professionally for the past twenty years and a winner of several school and University level dance competitions, Swaroopa brings to her dance a rare sense of devotion and dedication, which leaves the audience with a sense of spiritual fulfilment. Apart from her interest in choreography, Swaroopa also shares her knowledge about the beautiful art form, Bharathanatyam, through her dance class Natyaloka in Dunedin.
