"In order to understand the dance one must be still.
And in order to truly understand stillness one must dance."
~ Rumi


Meet Yagyaa

The entire foundation of life and creation rests on the principles of silence and dynamism. Of stillness and movement. My journey with dance has been a constant exploration and experience of this essence of life.

The language - Kathak

Kathak, from the root word "katha" can be loosely understood as storytelling. It is one of the 8 classical dance styles of India.

In ancient India, there were "Kathakars" or bards who used to recite religious and mythological tales to the accompaniment of music, mime and dance. The dance style has evolved over time, being shaped by regional and cultural influences from different parts of the Indian subcontinent.

​For me, Kathak goes much beyond its traditional understanding as ‘story-telling’ and becomes a means of expressing the Self; a form of communication between the body and the space around it; more than an outward expression, a journey within.

The body aligns itself to the rhythm and melody of the accompanying music, the feet, the hands, the face, all in complete synergy creating movements using the space and energy around, and the dance becomes a landscape for the soul.


A consonance of the body, mind and soul makes the dance akin to meditation, a state of conscious, mindful ‘being’.
