Who Am I: 25-YO Hyderabad Dancer Will Make You Question Gender Norms

25-year-old Patruni Chidananda Sastry is a resident of Hyderabad who describes himself as an expressionist dancer and activist. Sastry, as he is popularly known, started learning classical dance at the age of five and had given his first public performance when he was seven years old.

As an analyst in an MNC, he spends his mornings crunching numbers and evenings practising dance.

In this exclusive interview with The Better India, Sastry speaks about how dance is a powerful medium to discuss topics which otherwise get brushed under the carpet, gender fluidity, and how he wishes to dance forward.
