As a choreographer, dancer and teacher of Kathak for more than 20 years, I have dedicated myself to studying the intricacies of this Indian classical art form, developing new works, and teaching a new generation of Kathak dancers.
"I explore new and distinctive ways rhythm and tempo can be used to evoke expressions and thought, and to provoke dialogue in the evolution of contemporary East Indian classical dance. I enjoy sharing my art and perspectives at conferences and festivals in India, and abroad." - Anjali Patil
