Experience the beauty and elegance of Kathak, a classical dance from the temples and courts of North India. This ancient style of dance is characterized by fast and rhythmic footwork and very graceful arm movements and is derived from the word katha, meaning “the art of storytelling.” Offered as an evening satsang performance and three daily hour-and-a-half workshops, we will also explore the narrative elements that form the basis of this traditional technique.
