Kathak Guru & Founder
Anjana Gupta, the Founder Director of SpACE is experiencing this, from the time she started learning Kathak over 15 years ago. Her journey of self-discovery did not stop here - her passion in dance saw her pursuing a degree in choreography. Here she learnt what Curt Sachs meant when he said – “Dance is the mother of all arts. Music and poetry exist in time; painting and architecture in space. But dance lives at once both in time and space”. This inspiration drives her every action.
One part dancer, one part choreographer, Shruthi’s tryst with Kathak began at the tender age of six with Guru Chitra Venugopal. Over the course of many years, Kathak classes went from only on weekends to three days a week, to all day every day at Natya Institute where she completed her Bachelors in Kathak and Choreography under the tutelage of Dr. Maya Rao.
Harsha was initiated in to music at a very young age, learning tabla from his uncle. He underwent training from Guru Siddaraju. At present he is under tutelage of Pt. Kiran Godkhindi and Pt.Pravin Godkhindi and accompanies his Guruji Kiran Godkhindi at various concerts. Harsha teaches tabla at various institutes.
