Event description

Description

This stand alone workshop is open to ALL LEVELS / ALL GENRES.

In this introductory Classical Indian Dance Workshop, learn the percussive rhythms of the form while developing co-ordination in Kathak's signature graceful movement.

“Kathak has a long history, when I am dancing or creating, I am part of its timeline and landscape – I am in a space where the linear walls of time are blurred and history exists in the present. As an artist, both in presenting and in creating, I spin and weave my cultural history in a form that brings it to life – where there is an exchange of rhythms and energies, where honesty opens up windows of vulnerability, and where the purity and beauty that stems from the positive messages conveyed in East-Indian mythology infuses confidence and surety. As an artist, I feel a sense of obligation to share this with others, and to not only be a follower within the timeline of kathak’s history and traditions, but to participate and weave my own history within this timeline.” Anjali Patil, Artistic Director
