Debalina Haldar is a Bharatnatyam dancer based out of Bengaluru. She’s a business consultant by profession and is also an internationally published author. Deblina is the creative mind behind Nritya Vriksha and has performed with different production houses.
The idea to start ‘Nritya Vriksha’ came when she was performing for a production group and met a Kathak dancer. Together, they came up with the idea that they must consider having a production house of their own where they can create concepts and showcase not only one dance form but cover other dance forms as well. Nritya Vriksha symbolizes a tree where dance lovers and various forms of dance can take refuge and grow under its shadow. This is what makes Nritya Vriksha unique.
“I don’t consider dance as a profession- dance is more like a passion. It gives me the energy to move on with life.” Till date there hasn’t been a single day when Deblina hasn’t danced. Dance is an integral part of her as she began this journey when she was just a little girl.
She believes that in an art form like dance it is important to perform as well as see others performing. When we see others performing, we understand the nuances of not just the dance form but also the stage on which the dance is performed. Knowledge about lights, sound, and stage setting is crucial to understand what works and what doesn’t.
Social media has played a major role in reaching out to people and through this medium she’s been having numerous gigs as well. Various platforms and websites of auditoriums have provided artists with due scope and exposure that they deserve in their fields. She believes that online mediums like YouTube have helped many artists immensely to learn anything they like digitally. But on the other hand, she feels there’s no learning better than a guru-shishya parampara.
She thinks platforms like One Page Spotlight provides a really good platform for an artist to connect with fellow artists and organizations. To connect with Deblina and know her journey of dance, stay tuned with One Page Spotlight https://www.opsplt.com/deblinaj89
