Anitha has impressed the audiences with her abhinaya (expressions) at a very young age and has won many awards and accolades representing her dance school. Having excelled in the dance examination conducted by the Karnataka state in India, Anitha excels in the theoretical aspect of Bharathanatyam as well.
