Snigdha Mohanty

Snigdha is a disciple of renowned Guru Padmabhusan Kelu Charan Mahapatra. She is one of the fine and exquisite dancers of the Odissi dance form. It is not only the teachings of her Guru ji, but also her Guru maa Laxmipriya Mahapatra (wife of Guru Kelu Charan Mahapatra) who has contributed a lot to enlighten the path of her life in this real world. Snigdha was born and brought up in Orissa, Eastern India - the land of Odissi. She belongs to a family with rich heritage of culture and spirituality. Her father Late Sri Tapas Kumar Maity and mother Smt Dolly Maity were the source of inspiration for her to keep the art and the tradition of Orissa alive. Although she was fond of dancing since the age of five, she started her tutelage under utmost guidance of Guru Sri Kelu Charan Mahapatra, Bhubaneswar at an early age when she was in school. This was the time which saw the revival of Odissi in the social and contemporary stage. Her early training lasted nearly 10 years by which time she has taken up academic as a serious pursuit. She has completed her Masters Degree in Psychology from Utkal University. She has also acquired Masters Degree in Personal Management from IIMS, Kolkata to excel in her professional career. She is currently based in Taiwan since early 2005 with her husband who is holding a senior position in Taiwan's Mobile Telecommunication industry.For more about Snigdha Mohant, please visit her website
