Smt. Daya Ravi

Smt. Daya Ravi established the Natraj School of Indian Dance in 1996 as its founder, director, and choreographer and has been teaching Bharatanatyam theory and practice lessons at her dance studio in Boyds, MD. Daya learnt this art from Kalaimamani Smt. Krishnakumari Narendran (Pandanalloor style) and Acharya Guru Sri. Udupi Lakshminarayanan (Kanchipuram style). She has intertwined the subtle nuances of both the styles in all her choreographies. Daya believes that art has a purpose. Hence, every year NSID donates its proceeds from its annual day to charities. In 1980, Daya Ravi acted in the children’s dance movie “Purandaradasar” and received the best child artist award from the state of Tamil Nadu. She is certified in both theory and practical concepts of Indian Music and Dance. Since childhood she has been traveling worldwide to perform at prestigious venues.

Reshma Sri Ramesh

Reshma has been a disciple of Smt. Daya Ravi since the tender age of five. Over the years, she has performed in several cultural events, fund-raising events around the DC Metro Area and has further refined her art by learning the intricate details of it under the guidance of her Guru along the way. She has done a few workshops with esteemed gurus and played a part in the production of 'Shiva Thandavam' by Dr. Sanjay Shantharam in Virginia. Reshma has been mentoring kids for dance for more than five years.

Reshma recently graduated from Urbana High School. She will be pursuing her passion for medicine by majoring in Physiology and Neurobiology at the University of Connecticut. She will also continue her passion for dance by joining Sanskrithi, a classical dance team at UConn.
