Reshmi Chetram is the principal of Sankskar Studios ( formerly Tarana Dance )  she is rooted in Kathak heritage, Indo-Caribbean culture and comes from a lineage of gurus that spans centuries. As a principal performing artist, dance educator & holisitic health practitioner with 20 years of experience, Reshmi brings with her a breadth of knowledge, history and a strong ability to root dancers while helping them expand to reach their individual potential in dance.

Founded on the principles of planting roots and blossoming, Sansksar Studios is rooted in preserving traditions and inspiring innovation in Indian Dance.
