Courtyard Dancers is a vibrant and diverse group that embodies the idea of multiplicity. We are engineers, doctors, bankers, lawyers, teachers and students who aspire to preserve the core and expand the boundaries of classical Indian dance, especially the North Indian form Kathak. Kathak exemplifies the synthesis of Islam and Hinduism, and signifies to us the act of pluralism practiced every day. For us, dancing is a form of critical social engagement-to connect to the traditional arts of India but within a contemporary framework of aesthetics and progressive politics.
