Smitha Ranjan

Smitha started her life as a dance performer at a very young age under the watchful eyes of her grandparents in Kochi. She learned the art rather quickly, and it came naturally to her. The surrounding and ambience too helped her a lot during her initial training days. Her aunt, Kala Vijayan (Sangeetha Nataka Akademi Award winner for Mohiniattam) was the first person to spot the talent of young Smitha. Her life took a turn and she started to train Bharatanatyam under Guru Kala Vijayan. Smitha did her Arangetram in Bharatanatyam at the age of 4. Guru Sreedevi Rajan, a well-known teacher and dancer, taught her daughter Smitha her first lessons in Mohiniattam. Smitha performed her Arangetram in Mohiniattam at the age of 6. She received her Kathakali training from her grand father, Guru Kalamandalam Krishnan Nair. She received her training in Carnatic Music under Professor Kalyanasundaram for over 8 years.
