My first teacher was Anna Melngalve, who enthusiastically taught the first generation of Bharata Natyam dancers in Latvia .
Bharata Natyam came in Latvia owing to Pille Roosi- dancer and dance teacher from Estonia. Pille Roosi has learned BN from Chitra Vishveshwaram and Syed Sallaudin Pasha, both come form Pandanallur dance tradition.
Dmitry Zmeyev – Kalakshetra educated dance teacher from Russia contributed in developement of my dance technique and attention to details.
Thanks to Milana Severskaya (Russia) I discovered the side of Yoga in Bharata Natyam.
Usha Raghavan – Indian teacher from Great Britain with her great knowledge and patience showed me the example of an ideal Bharata Natyam teacher.
