SG Legend Manimaran Thorasamy Passes On

It is with great sadness that we inform you that our dancing legend Mr Manimaran Thorasamy has passed on earlier this morning in India. Sources indicate that efforts are being made to bring him back to Singapore

In Pradhana Vizha 2014, the awards show honouring the best talents in the Indian television industry in Singapore,  Manimaran Thorasamy a dancer and choreographer was conferred the Lifetime Achievement Award by Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Lawrence Wong.

He is best known for his contributions to the Indian dance community. The artistic director of the dance troupe Manimaran Creations started out from humble beginnings, forming the troupe in 1979 with five friends. Back in the 1970s, there were no male dancers here in the Kollywood/Bollywood dance scene; Manimaram slowly built a reputation for himself as one of the leading dancers  in the Indian dance scene.

Besides establishing themselves in Singapore,  Manimaran and his troupe also travelled around the world, performing in India, Indonesia, England, Germany and France. He also took on roles as a dancer and actor in several Indian films, working with popular movie stars such as Rajinikanth.
