Katha Dance Theatre (KDT) has been teaching and performing Kathak, the North Indian classical dance form, for over three decades. Kathak is an elegant dance form characterized by rhythmic footwork, graceful hand gestures, pirouettes, lyrical movements, and storytelling. Since December of 2020, KDT has been producing a monthly virtual showcase series that highlighted different class levels, showcased diverse expressions of Kathak, and even celebrated holidays like Diwali.
This final showcase highlights KDT’s apprentices and company dancers. The name of the showcase, “Tarana-Sargam,” comes from variations of Nritta, or pure Kathak dances that highlight abstract movement rather than storytelling. “Tarana-Sargam” will feature performances of these types of Nritta as well as a few words of gratitude from the KDT community.
The free event will premiere on Vimeo at midnight on May 28. It will run through May 30 before it is archived on KDT’s website. Join us in celebration of our talented, dedicated and hard-working dance community!
