Chitresh Das Dance Company


The award-winning Chitresh Das Dance Company is a visionary voice and trailblazing leader in Indian classical dance comprised of some of the most powerful women to emerge from today’s generation of Kathak artists. Company members exemplify Pandit Chitresh Das’ emphasis on the technical, graceful, and dramatic aspects of Kathak dance, each an established soloist in her own right. CDDC produces traditional, innovative, and relevant work that is evocative and commanding, bringing both the richness of ancient India and a fiery, contemporary sensibility.
