Why Not? with Kalpana Raghuraman

Nov 08, 2023

My guest on this episode of Left Turn Podcast, Kalpana Raghuraman is always on the move! This is partially because she is a dancer and has created an incredibly innovative dance company, but also because for her, every moment is filled with new possibilities.

Whether mentoring dancers, writing a best seller, or facilitating Access Consciousness classes, Kalpana makes the most of every moment.

Kalpana Raghuraman is an internationally acclaimed performer, choreographer, dance mentor, published author, and scholar. Kalpana travels the globe creating change and consciousness through her art and facilitation.

People from different backgrounds and cultures feel attracted to her energy which allows her to work in all continents - from New Caledonia to Mexico, from India to Poland. She beautifully blends together her capacities as an artist with her awareness and talents as a trainer.
She is also the artistic director of her own dance company Kalpanarts.

Key Takeaways: 

  • Doubt can creep in and many of the doubts don't belong to you.
  • My left turns were undefined choices. 

With Kalpanarts she is creating contemporary dance performances using Indian rich sources of inspiration (philosophy, architecture, music, and dance) and combining them with Western dance and music genres. Her work is always socially relevant and speaks about today's world and especially appeals to diasporic communities - mainly the Indian one.

As a second-generation immigrant born to South Indian parents, Kalpana is a pioneer with her work for Kalpanarts.
