I run my dance school named Lakshmi Nritha Vidyalayam in three places. Past 12 years I am humbled to say that I was able to make thousands of students dive deep into the magical world of dance and its ecstasy. At the age of five I started learning dance. My father is my Godfather in dance. My father (Late V.A.Mani) was the first person who wanted to see me dance. And my mother (V.A.Ramani) my two brothers Bijeesh & Sudhish and all my relatives supported the dancer in me. I along with my childhood friend Manju Sasi started learning dance from the age of five from Guru Jolly teacher who was disciple of Kalamandalam Saraswathy Teacher. It was for four years and I did my debut on-stage performances really well. After the marriage of Jolly teacher I was compelled to join another dance class which was again a blessing I was very happily learning Bharathanatyam Varnam, Shabdham, Padham, Jadhiswaram, Thillana Bharathanatyam Margham and the rest all which includes the theory of dance was learned from Guru Kalamandalam Jaya Teacher. When Jaya Teacher shifted to Chalakudy my friends had to stop learning dance. As I was interested in learning more and more dance my father took me to Guru Prakash Sir where I learned Mohiniyatam. By that time I reached my high school and I was able to participate in many competitions at school level (Bharathanatyam, Nadodinritham, Sanganritham, Thiruvathirakali etc).
