This Semi-Classical course brings the beautiful styles of classical Indian dance forms to Bollywood. With a focus on the rhythms, story-telling, expression, power and grace that is integral to Kathak (one of the many classical indian dance styles), this semi-classical course acts as an introduction to the basics of Kathak and explores how the Bollywood songs we love can be a way for us to access this ancient art form.
