Shantha Ratii is a multi-faceted personality - a dancer, teacher, choreographer, cultural activist and film maker. She has had exclusive training under the most eminent dance gurus of India and Singapore, like Gurus Padmashree Adyar Lakshman, Padmabhushan Kalanidhi Narayanan, Oyur Govinda Pillai, Padmabhushan Raja Radha Reddy, Padmabhushan Vempati Chinna Satyam, K P Bhaskar, and Neila Satyalingam in Bharatanatyam, Kathakali and Kuchipudi. She now directs her energies towards the promotion of Kuchipudi through her innovative works and the Anatara Foundation which she has instituted for the promotion of Indian performing and visual arts. Shanta has been performing in all the major dance festivals in India and abroad to critical acclaim.

The stage is not the only place where she dazzles. She has scripted and directed several TV documentaries. Her recent work "And Miles to Flow", a 35 mm film on Asian dance theaters, was selected twice for the International Film Festival. Amongst the accolades bestowed upon her is the title "Kalashiromani" by Sahayog Foundation.

She has also conceptualized, scripted, and choreographed the dance theater production "Writings on the Wall" using Chinese and Indian calligraphy, which was premiered in Singapore.
