Kathak is one of the eight major forms of Indian classical dance. Kathak, meaning “the one who tells a story”, exemplifies the synthesis of Islam and Hinduism, and signifies the act of pluralism practiced every day. Kathak dancing is a form of critical social engagement-to connect to the traditional arts of India but within a contemporary framework of aesthetics and progressive politics. With rhythmic foot movements, hand gestures, facial expressions and eye work, Kathak involves one completely.
This workshop will be led by Naina Green. Naina’s unique style of Kathak evokes a soft and subtle restraint combined with sharp lines and crisp footwork. Hailing from Philadelphia, PA, USA and now currently residing in Pittsburgh, PA, USA, she is a founding member and Head Faculty of the Pittsburgh branch of the Courtyard Dancers, founded in 2000, and has been a fixture in the Pittsburgh dance community since 2004.
