After 11 years of practicing creative dance,JHINOOK realised her passion for the classical dance form BHARATNATYAM. It has been a rather pleasant journey for Jhinook,paving her way through the avenues of 'BHAVA', RAGA'. and 'TALA',under the subline shadow of the maestro GURU SMT. THANKAMANI KUTTY. at KALAMANDALAM KOLKATA.
