Guru M K
Guru M K Shalini Gokul, a Bharatanatyam dancer and teacher, is a summation of all her learning experience. At the age of 12, she was initiated into the art form under Guru Gowri (disciple of Guru Dhananjayan), Guru S K Vivekananda Baskar and Guru Bhavani Baskar (disciple of late Sri. V S Muthuswamy Pillai, late Shri. Rajarathnam Pillai and Smt. Radha).
THE KALAKSHETRA FOUNDATION
She holds a First Class Diploma and a Post Graduate Diploma in Bharatanatyam from Rukmini Devi College of Fine Arts, Kalakshetra. She has performed in various Kalakshetra productions. She then pursued her further studies and did her Master's in Bharatanatyam.
Guru Shalini is also into Fitness & Kathakali, which intensified her training and practice.
Guru Shalini constantly questions and revisits her perspective as an artist by finding ways to challenge her work. Her style has been developing into a unique reflection of her artistic practices and she has been appreciated by many for her innovative choreography, arresting emotions and attention to detail. Her choreography retains tradition and draws from the ancient, while creating something unique that relates to the contemporary.
