Kathak has in it, a beautiful blend of grace and strength. For me, as a professional kathak dancer, Kathak is not just an art but a channel to inner peace. It is a form of meditation which not only helps me develop my physical strength but also my emotional and mental strength . It has given me immense strength and positivity to face the problems life has for us.-Rujuta Soman
