Chethana was inspired most by her gurus and other popular dancers. She had a privilege of getting trained under the best gurus.
Chethana had her basic lessons of Bharatanatyam from guru natya Visharade Smt.Sheela Sridhar in Kalakshetra Style, which is well known for its precise and perfect movements. Hence Chethana is blessed to have been trained up in best of adavus and angashudha. However She later had a privilege to learn Mysore Style of bharatanatyam from Vidushi Smt.Shakuntalamma (grand-daughter of Late Padmabushana Dr. Venkatalakshamma), during her graduation in Fine Arts College, Mysore.
Chethana shows her respect and Gratitude to all her teachers even today.
