Bhavani Lee is a multidisciplinary creative performer, teacher & actor. Derived from her deep roots in classical Indian Kathak dance & a life long Yoga practice, Bhavani’s path led her to pursue Acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, dance & choreograph as a principle in the world renowned Cirque Du Soleil, create not one, but two dance & empowerment disciplines, & act in international feature films.
Bhavani was trained from a young age by Pt. Satya Narayana Charka then later by Pt. Birju Maharaj in the art of Kathak dance. Her own natural inquisitive nature led her to study Bollywood, Flamenco & Modern dance disciplines. She then took the concepts of all three art forms & created her own distinct style. It was this unique skill set & reputation as an innovator that eventually led to her being cast on a three year run as Oceane in Cirque Du Soleil’s Dralion. Being on stage & in front of the camera is her natural state. Her training in acting at the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts led to her recent starring in the feature film, Blemished Light, set in both New York & Delhi, with an all star cast.
On top of these achievements Bhavani has also had a lifelong relationship with Yoga & Meditation. She combined the knowledge accrued from her dance, yoga, meditation & acting disciplines into two forms of women’s empowerment & dance disciplines. The first, Devi Moves ™, which brings sensual Bollywood movements, ancient Indian dance, Yoga & Meditation together. The second, Goddess Embodied™, a joint effort with Jorja Rivero is a playful, sexy & profound method that seamlessly blends sensual movement, yoga elements & meditation.
