Overview

I have had my advanced kathak training from his Guru Late Shri Bireshwar Gautam, (Lucknow Gharana) who was also a very well know kathak dancer and an ace thumri singer. I have been learning and performing kathak since last 18 years. I have also given many performances all over India and has the opportunity to perform in many prestigious Festivals with my Late Guru Bireshwar Gautam. like the Spirit of Unity Concerts and National Integration in Chennai, Mumbai Kala Ghoda festival and The Ellora Festival- both organized by MTDC and also in Basant Utsav in Delhi, organized by none other than the kathak maestro- Pandit Birju Maharaj, and the Purush Festival in Mumbai.

I have also attended various Kathak workshops conducted by Pt. Birju Maharaj and also by Guru Pratap Pawar from London.

"I always wanted to Learn Kathak in its truest form and was searching for a teacher until I came know about Kathak Darpan conducted by Piyush. Piyush is an amazing Kathak Exponent who believes in building Foundation among students. I am happy to learn Kathak at Kathak Darpan because Piyush’s style is traditionally deep rooted and graceful.

"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. "
