“The mathematician’s patterns, like the painter’s or the poet’s must be beautiful; the ideas like the colours or the words, must fit together in a harmonious way.”
– G. H. Hardy

Taking its name from the panchanadais: five basic jatis (rhythmic beats) that form the basis of Bharatanatyam dance, NUS Indian Dance’s 28 celebrates the beauty of symmetry, geometry and proportion in art and nature.

In 28, Artistic Director and Resident Choreographer Mrs Santha Bhaskar draws inspiration from Da Vinci’s The Vitruvian Man, the Golden Ratio and the Fibonacci sequence, expressing these mathematical patterns through richly-textured visuals and original music in an evening of alluring classical Indian dance choreography

Mrs Santha Bhaskar will also be part of a panel ‘Rhythms and Patterns in Performance’ on 28 Feb at NUS Museum.



Established in 1977, NUS Indian Dance is a close-knit group of highly committed dancers that welcomes dancers into a dance family where growth and learning is encouraged. The group is faithfully guided by its Artistic Director and Resident Choreographer, Mrs Santha Bhaskar, a pioneer in the Indian cultural dance scene and Cultural Medallion recipient.

NUS Indian Dance pursues excellence in two styles of Indian dance – bharathanatyam and kathak – through rigorous and demanding training sessions aimed at maintaining high standards of performance. Dancers not only hone their dance skills but develop a deeper sense of self-confidence and cultural identity through their exploration of contemporary themes and concepts in every production.
