Kathak workshop at Aarhus University

On Tuesday 24 April 2018, 13.00-15.00, the India and South Asia at Aarhus University programme (CISCA) successfully organised a Kathak Workshop with Kristina Dolinina, assistant lecturer of Hindi Language and Literature at the Center of Oriental Studies, Vilnius University, Lithuania. She is also professional Classical Indian dancer and founder of Natya Devi Dance Theatre, recently doing her PhD on Kathak Dance from Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre. 
Kathak is one of the classical dance styles currently recognized and practiced in India and beyond. The dance style has developed from performing traditions of northern central India. Mathematically complex and fast rhythmic compositions, virtuosic footwork and swirling pirruets, graceful movements and subtle elements of emotional transmission - all these are the characteristics of Kathak dance.
