Niruthya Kalanjali Academy of Fine Arts is a dance school, primarily focused in teaching and presenting the Indian Classical dance form, Bharathanatyam. It has witnessed the growth of many hundreds of students, and has successfully completed Arangetrams for thirteen artists. This family began with its Founder, Artistic Director, Producer and Choreographer, “Natya Ratna” Smt. Nirothini Pararajasingam. An accomplished dancer and excellent teacher, she believes in promoting the Indian culture through Bharathanatyam. This interest and passion that began when she was a student, later led to a diploma for Bharatanatyam from the Institute of Bharathachoodamani in Madras, India, a BSc in Nutrition and Dietetics from Madras University, and has grown into a school of dance, art, guidance, and culture, in Toronto, Canada.
Smt. Nirothini Pararajasingam is most known for her ability to capture the audience through her innovative choreography and captivating story-telling. Using the basic stepping stones of Bharathanatyam, she creates adding her own flare in order to best communicate with her audience. The combination of her movements, her music sense, and her vision of the final production result in artistic dances awaited eagerly by everyone. She has entertained us with thousands of dance pieces and a handful of larger productions.
Over the years, she has presented with many titles as recognition of her artistic contributions. These include “Niruthiya Choodamani”, “Natya Ratna”, “Natya Shironmani”, “Natya Kalaanithi”, and “Natya Kalimaamani”. She has also received awards in recognition of her volunteering and humanitarian services through dance. Amongst these awards, she has also received great honour by achieving the Royal Order of Doctor Award and the Lieutenant Governor Award.
Today, Smt. Nirothini Pararajasingam has been successfully running Niruthya Kalanjali Academy of Fine Arts for over twenty years in Canada, and is simultaneously venturing into new ideas and projects. This dream is made possible by divinity, determination, strength of family, passionate students, numerous devoted parents, supporting community organizations and media, and faithful and encouraging audiences.
