CALCUTTA, Nov 4, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) Ritobina Chakraborty is a cute girl from Salt Lake AKA Bidhannagar, Kolkata who is barely in her teens. We discovered her talent when we happened to watch her dancing on stage at a Salt Lake Block Durga Puja Pandal. The young danseuse caught our eyes immediately with her impressive performance dancing to the song Fagunero Mohonaye popularized by acclaimed Bengali Folk-Fusion Band BHOOMI. Watch a clip of her dance performance using the video player below.

Rwitobina has learned Indian Classical Bharatnattyam Dance for five years from Kalamandalam, Kolkata under the guidance of Legendary dancer Thankomoni Kutty. Right now her passion is to choreograph her own dance performances.

Her talents are not confined to dance. This young Gokhale Memorial student is also taking lessons in Indian classical vocals from singing exponent Ustad Muskoor Ali Khan.
