JHINOOK was put into training in creative dance when she was only 3 years old at MAMATA SHANKAR BALLET TROUP by her parents with deep musical interests. 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.
