ExtraImaginary: Please give us a little background about yourselves and your dance.
Shalini & Shruthi: In the real world (LOL … as in working world) we both are graduates. Shalini in medical electronics engineering and Shruthi in Information systems and technology. We both work in Nairobi; Shallu is a product specialist at Nairobi X-Ray Supplies Ltd and Shruthi the head of IT at Kenya Data Networks (KDN).
In our world, we are dancers … and dreamers … As far as dance goes, we’ve been learning right here at home since we were 4 and 3. Dance pretty much defines a huge part of us! We are Bharatanatyam dancers.
