We are so excited to launch our brand new website today! Our site was designed and developed by Function1 and we are so grateful for their time and expertise in creating the brand new, modern and exciting site that we so so needed! 

The new design really helps showcase all of our disciplines and puts the spotlight on our artists and performances (past and upcoming). 

There are some really cool features to the site that you can check out like the Performance History page in our Portfolio, there you can see all the major highlights, performances and events that SAPAN has been a part of since our inception in 2007! 

We hope you love it as much as we do and if you have any feedback or comments please let us know! 

About the Author

Sarika began learning Bharatanatyam at the age of 6 and performed her Arangetram (solo dance debut) in 2000 under the tutelage of the Kunhiramans. Throughout her training, Sarika also attended the Natya-Adyayana-Gurukula (summer dance camp) conducted by the world renowned Dhananjayans. She has performed in multiple venues within California and was a part of the Dhananjayan dance drama, Satya Shivam Sundaram which toured through the East Coast. Although Bharatanatyam was Sarika’s first exposure to dance, she has since developed a love for other South Asian performing arts by performing with the UC Davis Girls Bhangra Team, Ronak Punjab Ki. She has also used her expressive talent to perform Bollywood film songs at weddings, at the University of Maryland Cultural Shows and a Virginia-based dance company. Sarika continues to pursue all forms of dance and has found that it has shaped many other aspects of her professional and personal life. Professionally, Sarika is a consultant specializing in Program Management and Strategy.
