About the course

Luv and Kush, the twin sons of Lord Rama sang and danced the Ramayan and since then travelling storytellers have become a part of the cultural fabric of India. Many Indians spent their childhoods glued to the television set come Sunday morning in order to watch the Ramayan. Now, after more than 50 years of research, Dr Puru Dadech has carefully reconstructed the dance of the Kushilavas within the Kathak format. Based on Sri Tulsidas’ Ramcharitramanas, students will learn to presented the entire Ramayan in an abridged dance format. This special course is open to anyone who is interested in dance. No prior experience in dance is required!
