About Kousalya Nivas

Bharata Natyam, the supreme art form which skillfully embodies the three primary ingredients of dance - BHAvam, RAgam and THAlaM, fascinated Mrs. Kousalya Nivas right from toddlerhood. She started to learn dance at the age of 4. She has done nearly 300 stage performances. She has been performing professionally for the past 25 years and is one of the most sought after dancers of her generation. She has bagged more awards in state level and national level competition in Bharata Natyam. She brings to her dance a rare sense of devotion and dedication, which leaves the audience with a sense of spiritual fulfillment.

  1. Mrs. Revathi Muthuswamy, Srirangam
  2. Late Mrs. Indra Kannan, Srirangam
  3. Mr. VijayaKumar, Coimbatore.
Currently she is pursuing her Masters in Bharata Natyam in Annamalai University, Chidambaram, Tamilnadu.
Endowed with a pleasing stage presence, Kousalya Nivas brings to her audience a refreshing presentation of Bharata Natyam, exhibited through her strong sense of rhythm, scintillating nritta and lively abhinaya. Everyone who has seen Kousalya Nivas perform is struck by her unique thought process and fresh approach to dance. While deeply rooted in tradition she has evolved her own individual style without affecting the core principles of BharataNatyam.
