Classical Indian Dance Class
Traditional Khatak Storytelling
Pooja Bhatnagar, internationally renowned Kathak artist and disciple of Smt Geetanjali Lal and Shri Rajendra Gangani, began her training in Kathak dance at an early age of 6. A proficient and highly dynamic solo artist, Pooja has performed traditional Kathak solos to great acclaim in dance festivals in India, Japan, New Zealand and throughout Indonesia. Her performances are marked for her technical virtuosity and brilliant execution. Pooja has choreographed numerous Kathak dance works, including ‘Shikhandini’, ‘Putri Sagara‘, and ‘Buddha Charita’ to name a few.
Kathak is rooted in storytelling and poken words and literature played an integral role in its formation, delineation and evolution. Classical Indian dance is also a form of spiritual practice and can bring one into a meditative state once one has mastered its form. Pooja will guide the participants through poetic pieces, vandanas/ shlokas and various techniques that are part of Kathak repertoire. The Ghunghroos (ankle bells) will be provided during the class.
