Madhavi Krishnan, born in 1941 in Singapore, is a pioneer in local Indian classical dance and choreography. Trained in the classical dance traditions of bharatanatyam and kathakali in Singapore and India, she founded the National Dance Company in 1970 and, through it, created works that integrated Indian classical dance forms with multicultural influences. When the Cultural Medallion made its debut in 1979, she numbered amongst its recipients and became the first dancer as well as the first female recipient of the prestigious national award.
