For three decades, Malavika Sarukkai has been a hallmark dancer and choreographer in the traditional bharatanatyam style. A firm believer in the continuity of Indian classical tradition, Sarukkai preserves key elements of bharatanatyam while providing a personal interpretation of the dance's cultural significance. A favorite of Indian dance critics, she inspired the phrase "innovative-within-tradition" to describe her stimulating dances.
