Kathak Dance
Kathak Dance

Kathak is one of the eight Classical dances of India.

Originating from North India, DNC specialises in the style of Lucknow Gharana, directly from the lineage of the Late Pandit Birju Maharaji.
Kathak is is a disciplined and well-rounded art-form, which over time can have profound benefits on a person’s PHYSICAL and MENTAL health…
As well as practical dancing, there is a strong emphasis on theory, history, rhythmic cycles and much more. DNC teaches a holistic approach to Kathak, as a beautiful amalgamation of historic influences of both Hindu and Mughal cultures, incorporating rhythm, poetry, storytelling, footwork, hand gestures and facial expressions.
All classes are taught by Nikita (left image), who is a solo Kathak dance artist and the main teacher at DNC Studio. She has trained and mentored several hundreds of kids, teens and adults in Kathak, since 2005. Aside from dance, she is a Yoga instructor, Meditation facilitator, Reiki Master and Life Coach.

Once you join, you will not look back…

DNC offers both face-to-face and online options for adults’ wanting to learn Kathak dance. All of the below are suitable for beginners, who are either new to the form or are resuming dance after a long break.
Online classes are suitable for anyone who cannot commute to the DNC Dance & Yoga Studio in Slough.

“Joining DNC has given me a new lease of life! Having somewhere to go where I can work on my physical & mental health at the same time. I often find myself staying back after my class to watch the other groups and before I know it hours have passed by. The WhatsApp group keeps me on track as we get regular updates, motivational messages and videos to work with. Its a real community atmosphere and something I can’t see myself ever being without.” – Tahira Chaudhary (age 28)
