Oxana Banshikova

I am Bharatanatyam (South Indian Classical dance) teacher, dancer and choreographer originally from Kazakhstan. Holding Bharatanatyam degree after completing 4 year course at Kalakshetra College of Fine Arts (Chennai India). Since my graduation in 2006, I had been living, teaching and performing in Hong Kong where I started Cosmic Dance company to help spreading awareness about Indian Classical Dance in Hong Kong and China.

For the last 10 years I've been researching healthy and safe dance approaches in South Indian dance forms and Bharatanatyam in particular. This led me to completing the Ying Yoga course (deep passive stretch technique) in 2011 and the Pilates teacher certification course by Polestar Pilates in 2018.

In 2019 I moved to Edinburgh and working towards establishing myself as well as my Cosmic Dance Company in Scotland.
