Don’t miss this rare opportunity to spend five intensive dance sessions with kathak doyenne Kumudini Lakhia. Founder of the Kadamb School of Music and Dance, Kumudini Lakhia is an internationally celebrated pioneer whose groundbreaking works have paved the way for contemporary kathak—she is credited for moving the form away from its traditional solo configuration. Her innovative choreography and contemporary story lines bear her mark of exquisite techniques and melodious music, and her works are all landmarks in the history of Indian dance.

One of the most sought after teachers and choreographers in the world, she is guru to many renowned kathak dancers, including Aditi Mangaldas, Vaishali Trivedi, Daksha Sheth and Prashant Shah, and works and collaborates with international dance stars such as Akram Khan. Apart from teaching at Kadamb, she holds regular workshops and classes in the UK, Canada, and USA.

Kumudini Lakhia was awarded the civilian honour of the Padma Shri by the Government of India in 1987, the Padma Bhushan in 2010, the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award by Sangeet Natak Akademi, India’s National Academy Music, Dance and Drama in 1982, and Kalidas Samman for the year 2002-03.

In this masterclass, participants can look forward to learning some of her celebrated dance techniques, choreography and abhinaya.
