  22. Maitreyee Joshi says:

    #MyDanceDna Ballet evolved into contemporary dance over the ages and into what it is we see today, and it is constantly evolving, as a Kathak dancer, I look to you as one of the pioneers responsible for evolving this beautiful classical art form. Where do you see Kathak evolving to and do you think it is ready to undertake an evolution? Especially in the context of Indian contemporary dance?
