Hello everyone! My name is Ritika Lal and I am currently a senior in high school. Dance has been a big part of my life ever since I was a toddler. I train in the Vazhuvoor style of Bharatanatyam Indian Classical Dance at the Srutilaya School of Dance, and also in Kathak Indian Classical Dance, at Kathak Rhythms. I started blogging during my junior year while prepping for my Arangetram – one of the most difficult stages of my dance career thus far – to help document my experiences and share what I’ve learned with other dancers. My intent is to be as helpful as possible without being boring, and give practical advice to help you with your dance journey. I also share random things about myself and what I’m working on now from time to time… Anyway, I hope you enjoy!
