Kathak class in Jaipur
I have just returned from India where, with fellow Crows Tania and Carolyn, I attended 2 classes in the classical Indian dance form Kathak. Here we are in our dance costume, tightly wound round with a long scarf, what you cannot see are the beautiful bells tied to our calves that tinkled as we rhythmically stamped our feet. We only touched on the basics but that was still quite a challenge! We had a lovely teacher, ably assisted by her senior students who we were also lucky enough to see dance.
