Dance & Performing Arts
Kathak is an Indian classical dance form within Hindu temples as a storytelling device for portraying the epic tales from Hindu scriptures, Mahabharata and Ramayana.
Our performances include dynamic and fast-paced exploration of the rhythmic textures and formulations of traditional form and through the prism of modern experiences and aesthetics.
kathak dancers tell various stories through their hand movements and extensive footwork, their body movements and flexibility but most importantly through their facial expressions.
Take a look at our forthcoming events.
