Hon Lady Godiva

Coventry, situated in the Midlands, is one of the ancient cities in England. World famous playwright William Shakespeare was born in Stratford, which is approximately thirty miles Southwest of Coventry. It is an industrial city and home for several inventions and productions. The very popular Jaguar car company is based here. Frank Whittle, who invented the Jet Engine, was born here too.

This city is world famous for our Lady Godiva's life story, which happened back in the thirteenth century and bringing meaning to the history and great heritage of the City, we still celebrate it every year in the streets of Coventry. The Godiva sprit, a timeless message of caring, unity and empowerment, stimulation and a smile for those in need of friendship - symbolises the humanity of mankind.


It was a magical world that I stepped into. One that was filled with musicality, serenity and divinity. As I threaded down the path of my Arangetram, little did I realise that at the end of it, the world of dance would have become part of me.
Since I could remember, I had always imagined myself performing my Arangetram whenever I attended one. Finally, with God�s grace I had the privilege to do so with Apsara teacher. She is one who personifies love and dedication to dance. When I try to make a list of things that I learnt from her, that list becomes endless. All I can tell you is that today I not only look at dance, but music, art, and culture with new eyes. It was she who opened that door into this magical world.-> -> -> M O R E
