Kathak dancer for many years, I’ve discovered this art at the age of 10. It has been a love at first sight. Trained by Guru Pandit Ravi Shankar Mishra, a famous Kathak exponent, from Banaras Gharana. For the last 3 years, I’m training and performing with Nathalie Masson, a disciple of Sushmita Banerjee, a celebrated Kathak exponent (belonging to the Lucknow Gharana) and expending my Kathak’s repertoire. Together, we are Duo Dharkan. I’ve been also taught by Kavita Takhur, Pali Chandra, Sharmila Sharma, all famous Kathak dancers from Lucknow Gharana. My purpose is to develop my knowledge and to find my own style and body expression through Kathak’s foundations.
I had the chance to live six months in Varanasi with my Guru where I improved my dance and I had the chance to familiarize myself to the culture and its traditions. Now, I’m travelling regularly to India to improve and develop my movements and knowledge.
Performing as a solo or with Dharkan Compagny, contact me for your events.
I teach absolute beginners with no experience in the dance, as well as beginner-intermediate level for people who already know basic footwork and hastaks. My purpose is to share this art around Switzerland.
