Celebrating Our HeART-filled Heritage: Leela Dance Collective

*Donations appreciated

Oakland Asian Cultural Center | 388 9th Street, Oakland, CA


Tune in at 4pm PDT and watch as Leela Dance Collective ensemble members take kathak to the streets, performing against the backdrop of our unusually quiet cityscapes. Featuring excerpts from California Gharana, this innovative repertoire represents the work of legendary kathak artist Pandit Chitresh Das. After the performance, participate in an introductory kathak workshop and experience the way that kathak dance can ground the body, focus the mind, and uplift the spirit. Find a hard floor or surface to dance on and get ready to sweat!
