I’m reminded of this anecdote time and again. Every time I attended birthday parties as a child, my mother would receive calls from parents telling her how happily they enjoyed watching me dance. Funnily enough, being completely unaware of my inclination towards dance, that’s how she discovered this hobby that I’m absolutely passionate about! Dancing was an art that came very naturally to me.
Reciting bandishes whilst doing household chores and dancing them in between conversations, such is my bonding towards the art of Kathak. After the lockdown got imposed, it looked almost impossible to dance in front of the mirror along side Rujuta tai and my class mates. But, with the online learning platform; the doors to learning virtually were open! With so much time in hand, riyaz became a daily routine. Sending assignments weekly, helped me in correcting my postures and movements. Sundays continued to excite me about attending class and the fact that our Annual Show was to take place this year too had me on cloud 9!
