"A brilliant experience. Being a complete novice to the art form, I was sceptical about joining a Kathak class. I realised upon joining the class how relaxed the atmosphere was, thanks to sir. He teaches patiently and tells us not only the nuances of the dance but also the why and how of the same. Needless to say he is an accomplished dancer with all his merits, and one of the best I have seen. "
