Vani Ganapathy is a Bharatanatyam exponent who began her training with T.A Rajalakshmi at Calcutta at the age of four and had her arangetram at the age of seven.

Vani moved to Chennai after marriage, and from 1986, she began performing on her own establishing herself as a successful solo artiste. Besides performing extensively in India, she has performed in Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Middle East, and China.

Vani Ganapathy is a talented artiste whose presence is seen in other fields related to art. In the mid - seventies she presented a TV series The Rich Heritage for Doordarshan on the four classical styles of dance in the Young World programme. It was Doordarshan’s entry at the Blue Danube Festival in Europe and was later telecast by BBC.
