Tatini Das

The Dancing Queen

Tatini is a Bharatanatyam dancer who has founded her own dance academy. She helps students and women to find their inner selves through this beautiful journey of dance.

Namaskar, I am Tatini Das from Guwahati, Assam. I am a Bharatanatyam exponent and the founder of the Manjary Dance Academy which is now completing 11 years. I started my institute with only four students now it's above 200 students with four branches.
Culture is one of the important aspects of a child's development; through dance I help many needy children to learn the subject of dance. Many students who passed out from my institution are settled their life. Time to time, we conduct workshops in Government schools for children who can't afford to learn this art form.
For the promotion, preservation and popularization of classical dance form of India we organize classical dance festivals like Kameshwari Nritya Mahotsav and Rhythm, Sattriya dance festival and this happens without any government. support and sponsors. It is very difficult for me to organize such festivals but my strong will power to do something for society gives me the power to overcome all the difficulties.
Few days ago, I got through a big operation for which I could not walk properly. Being a dancer it's very painful but because of my dedication towards dance I overcome all these obstacles and again come back to my beautiful world of dance.
Being a mother of a daughter and a wife and a member of a joint family I performed all my family duties. I inspired many women who are the parents of my students to be involved in this beautiful journey. These women are now happy to find their own identity through dance and they have also help me in my journey. I want to inspire more women to work in this field.
