performance by Jigna Dixit
June 22, 2010
sparkling and energetic – these words define Jigna Dixit's Kathak recital
at the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan in Mumbai on 29th May 2010.
The Teen Taal repertoire had many tukdas woven well from one to another, again executing pirouettes and fantastic footwork. 'Kahe Rokat Dagar Pyare,' the Thumri by Bindadin Maharaj portrayed Radha - Krishna's playful antics. This was brought out effectively through Dixit's abhinaya.
Dixit has received early training in Kathak from Guru Dharamshi bhai from
Bhavnagar and her dance has bloomed further under the tutelage of
renowned Kathak dancers Maulik Shah and Ishira Parikh at Anart Foundation
in Ahmedabad. Her performance bore the trademark style of Shah and Parikh.
A Visharad in Kathak from Akhil Bharatiya Gandharva Mahavidyalaya, Anonna Guha is a Kathak teacher at Nrityanjali Institute in Mumbai, established by her father Dr Tushar Guha 40 years ago. She conducts personality training programs for children and corporate companies with her father.
