Ragamala Dance Company engages in a collaborative practice rooted in the idea of Bharatanatyam as a sacred and dynamic living tradition. We embody the kindred relationship between ancient and contemporary that is urgently needed in today’s world. Ranee and Aparna’s training under legendary artist Alarmel Valli forms the bedrock of a creative aesthetic that springs from beauty, truth, and spirit. Ragamala is a pioneering, woman-led, intergenerational, family-run organization committed to the idea that while history is time bound, the stories we share are timeless. Ragamala's work in the performing arts field is expansive—we set our gaze far beyond the stage and exemplify the intercultural narratives of countless global citizens.
