Natya student Rekha Iyer receives Young Arts recognition

Natya student Rekha Iyer received an Honorable Mention, the second highest distinction, from the National YoungArts Foundation. The winners were selected from a competitive pool of over 10,000 applicants representing artists from across forty-seven states.

Selected through a blind adjudication process conducted by an independent panel of highly accomplished artists, the 2018 winners represent the top 10 percent of applications.

YoungArts winners gain access to one of the most comprehensive programs for emerging artists in the U.S., offering professional and artistic development opportunities over the course of their careers.

They will receive cash prizes of up to $10,000; opportunities to share their work with the public at renowned institutions such as the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Sotheby's in New York, and New World Center in Miami. They will also gain access to mentors, including Academy Award-winning director, producer, editor, writer and cinematographer Doug Blush; award-winning photographer Corinne May Botz; three-time New York Dance and Performance awardee Nora Chipaumire; Grammy-award winning vocalist and songwriter Lisa Fischer, and best-selling authors Michael Grunwald and Kristen Simmons, among others.

Invited to participate in the regional Young Arts program in NYC this April, Rekha looks forward to not only sharing her own art, but to exploring new avenues for dance with her peers. She expresses her deepest gratitude for this award to her Guru Hema Rajagopalan for providing her with invaluable knowledge, guidance, and support!
