I am based in houston, tx and have more than 15 years of performing dance experience and 5+ years of teaching experience in Kathak. I did my masters in kathak (Style: Lucknow gharana) and learned from Smt Savita Godbole (Direct disciple of Late Lacchu maharaj) and later with Dr. Suchitra Harmarlkar. Over the past decade and a half I have won numerous awards from various autonomous cultural institutions in India including a National Scholarship (awarded for excellence in kathak) from the ministry of tourism and culture (Govt of India). I also presented solo classical dance in Houston and Philadelphia last year. My biggest achievement came before coming to Houston when my talent was recognized by 'President of India' Smt Pratibha Patil. Presently I take classes in Houston, Katy, Sugarland & Cypress and also planning to start cyber classes through Skype / Google in other locations.
