Rukmini Devi Arundale started the revival of the Indian Dance - Bharatha
Natya when she performed at the Theosophical Convention at Adyar in 1936.
She established Kalakshetra Academy which is now a University and it is
celebrating 75th anniversary of the revival. To give you an idea of how
popular the dance is in the USA, all the major cities in the USA has dance
schools and most first generation immigrants from India, invariably send
their daughters to be trained in it. You can read about the celebration
scheduled in Mumbai.
