Description

In India today there are three famous schools or Gharanas of Kathak that all have their unique styles. Kajal Sharma belongs to the Lucknow gharana that is famous for its graceful movements and expressive dance.

Kajal is an exponent of Kathak whose dance speaks eloquently of all the delicate strains that weave together to form the essential texture of Lucknow gharana. She is a leading disciple of the world famous Padma Vibhushan Pandit Birju Maharaj. She is a powerful and imaginative artist who displays breath taking techniques in both pure dance and abhinaya. Before settling in the UK she was a regular and well known performer on Delhi television, was recipient of numerous National and UP state awards and had performed Kathak in 32 different countries representing Indian arts and promoting this very special dance form.

Since moving to UK she has worked tirelessly to impart this unique knowledge to the younger generation through teaching, mainly in the North West. She and her students also participate in local festivals and selected shows. She has given several radios and TV interviews and was recently one of the judges for the BBC young dancers’ finals, for south Asian category. She is an examiner for the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing. She is a firm believer in preserving the distinct traditional aspects of Kathak, yet is able to infuse it with fresh creative thinking.

Kajal and her students today bring to you the 'Kathak Aayam' through this beautiful performance.
