Divya Unni was crowned, in 1990 and 1991, Kalathilakom in statewide competitions. On India's premier Television Channel Doordarshan, she presented a variety of Indian dance art-forms to national audiences, such as Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi, Mohiniyattam, and folk dances.

In the pursuit of promoting Indian culture in the West, Divya is developing the artistic talents of young children in the U.S. With this goal, she is currently the Director of Sreepadam School of Arts in Houston, Texas, U.S.A., with a branch in Kochi, India.
