The term Kathak is derived from the Vedic Sanskrit word Katha which means "story", and Kathaka which means "he/she who tells a story", or "to do with stories".
SISK is the brainchild of Shambhavi Dandekar. Shambhavi started running a branch of Maneesha Nrityalaya - her family organization when she was merely 18 years old to lighten her mother’s burden. She had the credentials and it was a golden opportunity for a budding performer, to grow as a teacher.
- Shambhavi’s International School of Kathak presents Darpan 2017, a biennial student recital along with Kathak solo by the world renowned Shambhavi Dandekar. Darpan will take place on October 15th, from 4.30 to 7 pm at Mission City Center for Performing Arts in Santa Clara. We look forward to your presence.
