Born into a family of dancers committed to the arts, she is the niece of the legendary classical dancers Travancore Sisters Lalitha, Padmini and Ragini.

Under the guidance of the distinguished exponent of Bharatanatyam CHITRA VISWESWARAN, Shobana's dedication to this art form was further honed kindling a commitment to reach beyond the ordinary.

Shobana has over the years performed in several of the Music and Dance Festivals in India. As a Bharatanatyam dancer Shobana is known for her fine dedication of this classical art form. She is particularly known for her abhinaya, clarity of line and strong rhythmic command of the idiom.

In 1994 Shobana founded KALARPANA with the intention of committing herself to the propagation of the classical arts.
