Description:

Welcome to our Beginner Kathak Dance Class!

 

In this class, you'll embark on an exciting journey into the world of Kathak, a traditional Indian classical dance form that combines intricate footwork, graceful movements, and expressive storytelling. Dancers will explore the fundamental footwork patterns that are the backbone of Kathak and practice different 'tatkars' or rhythmic sequences to develop agility and coordination. As they continue through the semester, they will progress from basic turns to more advanced techniques while maintaining balance and control.

 

*Costume Rental and professional video of recital is included. 

 

*Spring semester will end with a year-end show on Saturday, June 15th. Participation in the show is not manadatory. However, all dancers who choose to participate must attend all recital rehearsals. 

 

*All dancers participating in the recital will need to attend the mandatory rehearsals on Sunday, June 9th & Saturday, June 15th Stage Rehearsal.  Final hour by hour schedule will be released in early May. 

 

*All students must purchase a 2024 Black Moksha Arts t-shirt (No need to purchase if you already have one from December 2023 showcase.)
