GEMS Modern Academy, Nad Al Sheeba, Dubai
1st to 4th February, 2018
Gurukul Dubai has reached yet another milestone and completed 10 years of its existence. Ten years of celebrating life, dance, love, happiness, grace, beauty and much more. To mark the occasion, GEMS Modern Academy in collaboration with Gurukul Dubai are celebrating Gurukul Dance Festival 2018 with ‘Romance through KATHAK’.
Lasya in Hindu Mythology is said to be the dance performed by Goddess Parvati. Filled with grace and beauty, it is an ethereal expression of love and happiness. The timeless and eternal love story of Radha and Krishna is perhaps the most celebrated romantic tale of all times. The Festival talks about this magical and divine love that transcended time and boundaries…through KATHAK.
Team Gurukul, choreographed by Guru Pali Chandra and our gorgeous faculty members - Payel Das and Shuchita Sakwaya, will showcase various aspects of this immortal love story through Kavitt, Thumri, Bhajan and Bandish in Kathak style.
There will be performances by Guru Pali Chandra as well as our faculty members and alumni.
To add to the grandeur we have amongst us a guest artist - Madhu Nataraj. World renowned performer, choreographer, educator and arts entrepreneur. She will be performing on the 3rd and conducting workshops on the 4th of Feb.
The event is conceptualised by Somna Tugnait and held together by our Admin Team led by Swati Masurkar.
Janice and Dhanashree have been instrumental in making this dream come true.
