Usha also wrote about the fusion dance. She said, I call this Hybrid Bharatham and this is my way of switching between Hip-Hop and Bharatanatyam, 2 dances that I love, learn, and respect. My aim is to keep the essence of each dance and create something that does justice to who I am, she added.

A user said, The smoothness by which you switch west to south Asian and back is simply awesome!! Also, story telling the song with movements in Kathak style. Wow!! Another wrote, Love this. Fun to watch, well-executed, joyful, and a small sign of what’s possible when we make the effort to connect across cultures.

Usha has been doing Hip-Hop for nine years and Bharatnatyam for four. She holds a Master’s degree in Entrepreneurship and Project Management as well. Jey is a true-blue millennial hybrid, balancing her Tamil roots with her French existence on a daily basis with her dance series.

It’s a dance that people start young, but I started when I was 19-20 years old, which was already a challenge, Usha said when asked what drove her to begin learning Indian classical at the age of 20.

She further said, she enjoys watching this dance and thinks it is lovely. It’s so fascinating that I’ve started taking classes and studying them. I don’t mind starting things late because I believe that everyone has their own time zone. I’d rather do something late than never, she added.

The Hybrid Bharatnatyam series premiered in December 2019, and with just three episodes, it has already earned accolades from Raja Kumari, a trained Indian classical dancer.
