              Achutamanasa was born into a philanthropic family, which has an immense love for indigenous Indian culture.At a very tender age of five, as a child she was with a perception that �Dance is music and music is dance�. Feeling both are equally one,she asked her mother to make her join. Her mother Ms.Rajya Lakshmi infused the interest towards arts and got her child admitted to a carnatic vocal school. While learning rudiments in vocal music at the age of six, one fine evening, when she was going to the institute she got fascinated with the rhythmic sounds of Muvvalu (Classical Dance Anklets) and explored what her soul was aspiring for. Having been enthralled by rhythmic footsteps of classical dance of Kuchipudi (the native Classical Dance form of AndhraPradesh) she pested her mother by crying to have an admission to Kuchipudi institute. Namely, there is a transition from her perception.Even at that tender age, Achutamanasa had a succinct idea of what her soul was aspiring for.Recognizing the �spark� in her child and the agility of her body for Kuchipudi, her mother who herself is a connoisseur immediately accepted her proposal and admitted the child to the institute. Her father, Mr. Ravi Chandra, a senior police Officer encouraged and supported her.

She is deeply grounded in the Kuchipudi tradition and her mission is to bring this art form to a wider audience without losing it's aesthetic and cultural integrity.
              The dance journey of this illustrious artist commenced at the age of six under the guidance Guru Madhu Nirmala ,who had taught some basic steps. Her debut performance was at the age of six Andhrapradesh, to an audience of over a thousand. She continued her artistic endeavor under the tutelage of renowned gurus by Guru Mahankali Suryanarayana Sarma for 3 years where a strong foundation has been laid. Later, she has been moulded as a complete Kuchipudi artist and has been transformed as a gem of Kuchipudi by her Guru �Devaparijatham�,�Raja Hamsa, �Natyavisarada� Sri K.V.Subrahmanyam, who is a disciple of the world renowned legendary Gurus Dr. Vempati Chinna Satyam and Sri Chintha Adinarayana Sarma .

She was four years old and it was her mother who inculcated her into this art form. Vani's training began with Guru T. A. Rajalakshmi in Calcutta and in three years she performed her arangetram, her first public performance at the age of seven. From there on the art form took a special place in her life, inseparable and supportive.
                      In some years, her parents moved to Bombay and Vani had to shift her training too under nattuvanars of the same bani (tradition) Gurus Mahalingam Pillai, Govindaraja Pillai and Kalyanasundaram. This was the time when Vani performed in duet with her sister Meera and both stormed the world of dance with their vivacious and emotive performances. Vani & Meera were featured in all the big events and festivals of those times. The combination of Vani & Meera, their mother Indubala Ganapathy's vocal support and of course Guru Kalyanasundaram's intricate choreography set the stage on fire and had audiences mesmerized. The dancing duo were often asked to perform at the Raj Bhavan in Bombay for every foreign or Indian dignitary who visited.
                      In the mid seventies Vani presented a T.V. Serial for Doordarshan on the 4 main classical idioms of dance called "THE RICH HERITAGE" under the young world programme. This programme was Doordarshan's entry at the BLUE DANUBE FESTIVAL in Europe and was later telecast by B.B.C.
                      Vani moved to Chennai the mecca for Bharata Natyam, Vani's performances increased vastly here giving her the opportunity to carve a niche in the world of Bharata Natyam prominently. Vani's stint as a solo dancer began only in 1986. Around this time she moved to Bangalore, this move made her re-work on her dance and choreography and she took centre stage with grace and conviction.
                      VANI GANAPATHY is amongst the top Bharata Natyam Dancers of India today. Vani has danced all over the country and abroad including Au
