Bharatnatyam dancer & choreographer
Vaibhav Arekar says "I dance.. to experience that romance of movement - to reach the pinnacle of intoxication where realisation fails me, if i am dancing or dance is moving me."
'Arekar casts a spell. Vaibhav revealed immense virtuosity in delineating a rere Swathi Tirunal composition. He almost enacted a one-man ballet. The impact was there for everyone to see.' - Subbudu, The Sunday Statesman, Delhi
"I was spellbound by “Narmade Har Har”. Fantastic dancing, superb energy and distinct choreography." _ Jhelum Paranjape
