Kathak, an art of story telling.

How and when did this begin?

What strikes your mind when we say story?

Thoughts,imaginations, perspectives. Can we unlearn to learn something new, can we redefine something that we have defined!

Whats traditional and whats modern?

Can a tree be stable without its roots!! 

Dance.... is Maths, is Music, is Mystic, is Magic!!! 

Come lets talk, lets dance and lets delve

Kathakaar se kathak,

Kathak se kalakaar
