Aishwarya Jangam’s journey with and love for Bharatanatyam began at the age of 6 in Bengaluru where she gained a firm grasp of the basics and gave her very first Bharatanatyam performances for 4 years prior to moving to Australia. This experience was formative in igniting her passion for this rich and intricate art and the discipline, fortitude and strength of mind it brings its dancers.
This passion led her to begin undertaking summer study trips from 2007 till 2010 to continue her learning under Sri Srinivas Kenchaiah of Kalakshetra bani at the Performing Arts Centre in Bengaluru. These trips involved intensive daily Bharatanatyam lessons for two and a half months every year and the opportunity to perform in multiple performances at fundraisers, charity events and other celebrations throughout Bengaluru. She has been studying under her guru the renowned Smt. Gayathri Rajasekharan also of Kalakshetra bani since 2013.
Aishwarya has also performed in a number of Bharatanatyam performances in Brisbane, mainly at Indian cultural events, the most significant of which was as one of the closing dance performances at the FICQ Diwali event in 2014. With the incredible blessings of her guru-ji’s guidance she completed her arangetram on 7/1/2018 where she performed a full margam. Since then she has performed for the Kannada Sangha Ugadi celebrations, Basava Samithi Basava Jayanthi and the Fiji Senior Citizens Association’s Pioneers Festival.
