About Maheetha Bharadwaj:
Maheetha Bharadwaj is a Urology resident at the University of Washington. She has always had a passion for dance, and started taking ballet and bharathanatyam lessons when she was 5 years old. Soon, under the tutelage of both Padmashri Adyar K. Lakshman and Srimathi Sudha Srinivasan, she completed her arangetram when she was 10 years old, and began performing in India yearly during the December music festivals in Chennai.
Once she joined Stanford University for undergrad, she decided to explore her more American side. She joined Common Origins, a non-competitive choreography dance team as well as Alliance Streetdance, an audition exhibition dance team. She also co-founded XTRM Kpop Fusion, Stanford’s first and only kpop fusion dance team.
After college, Maheetha continued to train by taking classes from Mike Da Genius, Rob Bynes, Tarikh Campbell, and others in the industry. In New York, she competed with Project D Dance Company, and won second place at Elements 2018 and first place at Defining Rhythm.
When she came to Boston, Maheetha desired to create a space like many of the ones she saw in New York, where Indian Americans could explore their body through movement while raising awareness about South Indian culture and music. She started teaching dance workshops with KuthuHop, a dance org that aims to combine Kuthu with many different western-inspired styles. Till this date, Kuthuhop has taught around 20 workshops since its inception in 2018. While medical school and residency have made it hard for Maheetha to be able to commit time to Kuthuhop, she loves taking every moment she gets to dance and choreograph. Outside of KuthuHop, Maheetha is a part of the medicine tiktok community.
Recently, Maheetha was also a part of Watchlist Dance Company, and performed at Legends in April of 2022. She also taught a workshop with ChiTempo in Chicago. She’s really excited to teach at Rangeela Dance Company in Seattle!
