Amrita Lahiri began dancing at an young age in Washington, D.C. studying under Anuradha Nehru until she shifted to New Delhi later.
After her arangetrum debut at the India International Centre in New Delhi in 1996, for which she was critically acclaimed as 'first-class professional material', she continued to perform Kuchipudi, and also started learning Bharatanatyam under Leela Samson.
While in New Delhi, Amrita studied under Swapnasundari and Seetha Nagajothy (a senior student of Vempati Chinna Satyam). In Chennai, she studied with Kishore Mosalikanti. Her dance reflects the influences of all of these outstanding gurus, and the experience of many performances.
