128.Kathak demo

Why do people dance?  What happens when you dance? How is Western dance different from Indian dance? How many classical dance forms are there in India? How is Kathak different from Bharatnatyam? These are questions only a  connoisseur of dance can answer....  Besides getting an answer to all these questions, the students of IASE, on 19 September 2019, had the special privilege of watching a demonstration-cum- workshop  on Kathak, by the acclaimed   artiste, Ms.Shalini Sharma.

Trying to  imitate the  graceful  body movements and gestures of the artiste  made everyone realize that it   requires  years of practice...Not only  did the demonstration  create an awareness of the significance of  Kathak as an  art form, but also sensitize everyone to the scope of a performing art like  Kathak  to open  the   ‘third eye’ of perception.

The staff and students of  IASE places on record our appreciation to   SPIC MACAY (Society for Promotion of Indian Classical Music and Culture among Youth- funded by the Ministry of Culture) for organizing the event in the college.
