Founded by Rukmini in 2009, Raadha Kalpa Dance Company is a classical Indian Bharatanatyam dance company dedicated to the promotion of art and culture through performance, teaching, artistic collaboration and experimentation. The company uses Bharatanatyam, as the primary vocabulary of movement with the extensive use of Karanas, the ancient dance technique of India as prescribed by the Natyashastra. The company is committed to maintaining the aesthetic clarity of the Bharatanatyam vocabulary while pushing boundaries in choreography and theatrical context.

I believe my children will grow to be everything that I couldn't be. As I see them grow as dancers, there is a warmth and hope in my heart that I am overwhelmed by. Teaching helps me reinforce my ideas while questioning them all at once. It has helped me develop an open mind, to accommodate the possible perspectives of my students. It makes me see beyond myself as an artist and develop a selflessness that is difficult to cultivate as a solo performing artist.'
