Prachi showed an inclination and flair for the performing arts from a very young age. Encouraged by her family, she successfully pursued classical dancing, acting, modelling and dubbing as a young girl still in school but never at the cost of her academic studies. After graduating in Commerce from Narsee Monjee College of Commerce and Economics, her aesthetic side drew her to Interior Designing. And her interest in acting persuaded her to take a dramatics course conducted by the National School of Drama (NSD). But she found her true calling and passion in the exquisite beauty and grace of the Bharata Natyam style of Indian classical dancing, which she continued all along. Accepted at prestigious dance platforms, and groomed by masters of the art of Bharata Natyam, Prachi evolved into a worthy exponent of this exacting dance form at a remarkably young age.Prachi trained under the able guidance of Guru Vaibhav Arekar and performed her Arangetram under his tutelage. Now training under Guru Lata Raman in the Tanjavore style, she is also learning Nattuvangam and Carnatic music from her. She holds a Masters in Bharata natyam from Tilak Maharshtra Vidyapeeth (Pune) and is also a Graded artiste of the Mumbai Doordarshan.Prachi is an active volunteer with the CHIP foundation, an NGO that has adopted few BMC schools and she trains children in the art of Bharata Natyam. Art is a gift which once received must be shared, which is a strong belief she holds. She actively participates in the Outreach programmes conducted by NCPA-Mumbai through which lec-dems are conducted to get the children acquainted with the various classical dance forms of INDIA. Vivacious as a dancer, her sparkling public performances have held vast audiences captive at numerous cultural meets and dance festivals. Her constant endeavour is that the finer points and nuances of the magnificent Bharata Natyam be appreciated and enjoyed by everyone, be it a discerning audience or the lay public. After 2 decades of practicing this art form, she feels there is yet so much to learn in this vast ocean of knowledge. The more you learn, the more you realise how little you know!!
