*Mata Bhavani* is a vintage Dhrupad embodied in the Kathak idiom, personifying both the gentle and warrior like qualities of Adi Shakti- the Feminine Divine. This invocation becomes an important part of any contemporary Kathak dancer’s repertoire, fusing dynamism with lyricism.
This piece was choreographed by *Guru Maya Rao on Madhu Nataraj,* who will be conducting this workshop.

*Madhu Nataraj* needs no introduction. A renowned kathak dancer, choreographer and mentor, she is well-loved and revered by the Gurukul community. After a 5 year break, she is back to share this amazing choreography with us.

An exclusive original music track will be shared with all participants on completion of this 2-day workshop.

Date: 18 and 19th of May 
Time: 6pm to 8:30pm
Venue: Gurukul Studios, Latifa Tower, Dubai
