What's kathak? Try the dance next month at this Coquitlam workshop

Learn about the traditional Indian dance at Place des Arts in Coquitlam, as part of a collaboration with the Bandish Network Society.

A dancer who studied Kathak in India — and continues to practise the traditional movements — will talk about and teach the art form in Coquitlam next month.

Palak Dhiman, in partnership with the Bandish Network Society, will be at Place des Arts (1120 Brunette Ave.) on:

  • Sunday, April 7
    • 2 to 3:30 p.m. (talk and demonstration)
  • Saturday, April 20
    • 2 to 3:30 p.m. (workshop)

Following the Jaipur gharana style for more than 20 years, Dhiman began learning Kathak from Smt. Shobha Kauser at Pracheen Kalakendra in India and later under Smt. Usha Sharma in Winnipeg.

A decade ago, she earned her Master’s degree in sociology focusing on how Indian classical dance influences the identities of second-generation Canadians of south Asian origin.
