Sarika Haris teaches a hybrid class in-studio

Welcome to KDT’s 2021-22 Winter Session! In order to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn in their preferred setting, we will be continuing our hybrid of in-person and online learning. All classes this session will be open to either in-person or virtual learners, but any class with fewer than 5 in-person registrants will move online.

A few important things to note: masks must be worn by anyone in the studio at all times, regardless of one’s vaccination status, and proof of vaccination will be required for all in-person students over the age of 12. Further, all in-person students are required to abide by our safety measures and code of conduct, as well as sign this waiver.

NOTE: All in-person students who signed our waiver and provided proof of vaccination in the Fall do not have to do so again.

Our Winter session will introduce new students to the fundamentals of classical Kathak dance with a focus on its technique, terminology, and execution of dance syllables along with elements of storytelling. It will also help returning students build upon their established technique and skill level as they advance their ability in the classroom.

Kathak is so much more than a dance style. It promotes artistic expression and creativity; increases flexibility, agility, and grace; establishes strong mind-body connections and coordination; and provides important cultural context and knowledge. It is also adaptable to any skill level––all dancers over the age of 6 are welcome!

Again, filling out a registration form is only required for new students. Also, we also ask that in-person students read our code of conduct and sign the waiver located here if you did not already do so in the Fall.

Get in touch with any questions.
