*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.

*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.
