Meet Bageshree Vaze: an Indo-Canadian dance artist who performs and choreographs in the style of Kathak, the North Indian art form that is a synthesis of movement, rhythm and music. "In my practice as a performer and as an engager of other artists (through my company @pratibhaarts) I strive to enhance the cultural fabric of Canada and help make visible art forms that are just as much Canadian as historically predominant European-based dance styles."
Meet Bageshree and learn more about Kathak technique by joining the #DanceWeekend21 workshop on May 2nd! #ComeDanceWithUs
