My first Thumri Kathak performance back in January 2017, in Kolkata! My beloved Guru @surangamadasgupta choreographed this particular piece for me. Learning a thumri or in general abhinaya piece is where you start mastering real Kathak artistry, in my opinion. Of course, technical part of Kathak is there, making it look effortless and flawless is hard work! But Abhinaya piece, you need put thoughts and soul into each and every expression and body language. I had less than 4 days to really capture the whole idea, which I felt was not much, since I was getting ready with the Taal piece, Dhamar, too. But my Guru challenged me by pushing my boundary and gave me this great opportunity to perform in a small setting, to an appreciating audience. I was lucky to dance to the beautiful voice of @sumitmisra_official. My god, goose bumps while dancing. . . . #kathak #kathaklove #kathakdance #indianclassicaldance #indianclassicalmusic #surangamadasgupta #instadancer #kathakinkolkata #indischertanz #thumri #dancewithlivemusic #kathaktabla

Another one from the workshop. They were taught a variation of chakkars / Spins which is an essential aspect of kathak. It takes time to master these spins but the key is to enjoy them right from the start so the dizziness doesn’t take over😀 . . . #kathak #chakkars #spins #indianclassicaldance #workshops #sistersindance

I look forward to it and highly recommend it to all Kathak practitioners. I am excited to learn and train with a community of dedicated fellow dancers!"

Indian classical dance is sustained by a profound philosophy. Form seeks to merge with the formless, motions seek to become a part of the motionless, and the dancing individual seeks to become one with the eternal dance of the cosmos. ————————————————————Photo credit: Anna Magnolia @photo_magnolia Location: Humayun Tomb ————————————————————#dance #kathak #indian #classical #indiandance #indianclassicaldance #indianclassicaldancers #kathakdance #kathakdancer #croatia #croatian #delhi #photography #dancephotography #nofilter

Ecstasy 🙏💛 It's an overwhelming feeling. whenever i perform any story of Krishna my guru always told me to hold the Flute properly and try to feel the sound of the divine flute, which will help me to be in the character. Radha Krishna stories are my all time favourite 💞 🙈 Btw which one..Black and White or Coloured..? #krishna #kanhamurliwale #radhakrishna #flute #kavitt #kathakdancepose #kathakdance #kathak #Kathak
- It is often said that words can either inspire or destroy, so it is one's duty to chose the words one uses wisely. Violence is all about inflicting harm to somebody vulnerable. Violence, as it is usually portrayed, is all about bloodshed and physical harm. However, when talking about violence, little do we consider words. The way one conveys his ideas, feelings, emotions or perceptions through words may often result in some psychic harm. The reason behind choosing this campaign is specially to create awareness about every single type of violence. Victims, but I would rather say, survivors, should be aided so as to voice out the trauma they have through so that they can be helped to recover. I believe that even today, in every nook and corner of the world, there are such survivors who have the willingness to pour their heart out and seek for help, but they have no solution in view. In India, for example, violence against women is an appalling reality. So many of them have had enough of surviving in their cloud of distress and never-ending pain. Unfortunately, they cannot find an easy way out. So, through the blog, through the invincible power of words, these survivors will be able to embrace life again  because there is no greater happiness than living life rather than surviving. One should be taught to take part in the ordeals and face them bravely, instead of shying away and overlooking them by suffering and suffocating. The message I would like to spread through this blog is to celebrate life, RESPECT each other and cherish each breath as if it is the last one!#musings #vienna #austria #life #celebratelife #dance #artist #kathak #thekathakaarstudio #footstepsofakathakaar #likeforlikes #followforfollowback #creativewritings

#kathak at Studio Rada, Nihonbashi. 可愛いけど床が滑りすぎて怖くて動き切れず。少し目が回るけど可愛い小鳥さんが見守ってくれたりして楽し。WSはまたやりたいな。 ロケーションが面白いし。 日本橋には何で高速かけちゃったんだろな。青空の下なら良かったのに、な。 三越は金魚が出迎えてくれるよ‼︎
Vishal Thakur, currently studying under Shri Rajendra Gangani, presented traditional Kathak items at iconic Gaiety Theatre on the Ridge, Shimla. In Dhrupad he performed “Tandava gati mundane par nirtata Vanamali” at the 1st edition of Classical Dance Festival, Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, India.

My family had crazy dance parties. Me? I was God's designated wallflower, and quite committed to the cause too. I have stories about the ridiculous dance moves of uncles and aunts, saved up to regale you with at a dance party, so that I make up for my zero dance moves with my sparkling wit. But secretly, I always envied the fluid fire of abandon that coursed through their bodies. I even took classes. I had brief spells of learning Kathak, Bharat Natyam and a few Bollywood steps on Alisha Chinai's very popular track, 'Made In India'. None of those desperate measures saved me, however, in the desperate times when I automatically became a statue on the dance floor; waiting for the day a partner would lead me so that I could enjoy dancing sans the fear of doing it badly. And then in Pondicherry, I stumbled upon Odissi - the dance of sculptures. Maybe it was Pondicherry, where your pores soak in the art and culture in the air, and you feel inspired to learn. Or maybe it was Rekha, our Airbnb host and dance teacher for that week, and a woman I would want to be like. Whichever the reason was, it helped me gather the courage to combat my inhibitions. It wasn't bibbity bobbity boo. Every day, I would learn how to move my torso. "When you hold a child on your hip, you don't move your hip forward to take the child. You move your torso and create space in your heart to carry the child," Rekha would always say. My heart was stiff. And I had always thought it was a capricious child running off to dangerous places. That used to explain why I found partners, who couldn't keep time with my heart and stepped on my toes. But in reality, I had done nothing to move my own heart! Most people get a very limited meaning of follow your heart. The heart's purpose is not romance, but love. And love begins with yourself. So now, I'm learning to take the lead. :-) #travel #travelgram #travelwriting #traveldiaries #travelstories #writing #words #stories #wanderlove #wanderlust #pondicherry #puducherry #auroville #odissi #art #dance #culture #classicaldance #india #heart #airbnb #sculpture #kathak #bharatanatyam #love #cinderella #followyourheart #madeinindia #travelpics #travelphotography

Love is the whole thing. We are only the pieces ⭐️ -Rumi The mystic whirling dervishes always inspired me and I tried to recreate a theme similar to that at the first opportunity I got at @indianraga and I cannot be more thrilled to see the output !⭐️🌟 Dancers were the best!❤️so much talent⭐️ Costumes credit : my mother love @loombarashmi 😘 . . #kathak #indianclassicaldance #sufi #indianraga
This pose was brought into UNCHARTED after quite a lot of brain storming around how to show a flow of energy and chemistry between the two of us, in the beginning act of the piece. @anu_kishan_nair was so generous to come with us to the studio, and spend time elaborating on the aesthetics of this piece, and it accentuated the flavour and spirit of this piece for both tanveer and me. The concept, its execution, presentation, re-assessment and embellishments around the deep thinking over it is the best process an artist experiences. Share one of your experiences with us, and we will feature it on @kathak.kaleidoscope , tag us on add #knmkathak to your inspirational BTS story, help us explore the arts a lil better. #knmkathak #feature #getfeatured #kathak #odissi #artist #artistlife #bts #indianclassicaldancers #indiandancer #creativeprocess #rehearsals #publicity #artistforum #bharatnatyam #dancer #dance
