Sharmila Radha Krishnan started her training in dance and music with The Temple of Fine Arts Kuala Lumpur from the young age of 4. She started training in Bharata Natyam with Master Gopal Shetty and then continued on with Radha Shetty until her Bharatha Natyam Arangetram(graduation) with the title of Nrityanjali in 2003 in Perth while completing her university studies. She is also trained in the styles of Odissi and Kathak by The Temple of Fine Arts.
Sharmila has performed in many TFA productions internationally since she was 7 and continues to do so till this day.
Sharmila hopes to pass on to her students the values and principles she feels she has gained through her time as a student and performer with TFA. She feels that the best part about TFA is that she is given so much exposure to all dance & music styles and this has helped her body and mind be more receptive to the various ways one can move in dance. Teaching indian culture in a predominantly western society which is filled with modern day gadgets and technology, she hopes to teach her students the benefits of physical activity and its effects on the brain and how it can help keep the mind active, focussed and sharp. Her main aim with all her students is to instil in them the values of being kind, compassionate and giving through their time in TFA while learning an ancient art form/s.
