The duo of Anjana and Shruti Gupta gave a scintillating performance of Kathak at Yavanika, State Youth Centre on February 6, 2015 under our 'Every Friday Cultural Evening Programme'.
Led by their experienced Founder/Director Smt Anjana Gupta, the SpACE group has earned a name for itself as an academy for the holistic training and education of Kathak. Their performances are reputed for being flawless and enthralling.

My gurus constant words of encouragement have enabled me to improve my technique and helped me come to terms with the many intricacies of Kathak. She was the driving force behind my first ever solo performance, going as far as bending a rule or two to make sure I had what I needed at incredibly short notice.
