Dance forms don't conform to a geographical border. A good thing too, if they didn't travel at all, many of them wouldn't even survive.

A dance school in New York has been doing its bit to teach kathak (which translates to 'story-telling) the way it's meant to be learnt. And the East-West School of Dance, New York, together with its students and best performers, will be touring India during December 2003 and January 2004. The performance will present a fusion style incorporating classical kathak, ballet, and modern contemporary dance.

The East-West School of Dance has been teaching Kathak dance and dance dramas for over two decades, and on their tour of India this year they will also perform at the much-publicised Pravasi Bharatiya Divas in Delhi.

Apart from the ballets there will also be a dance-drama, Who's Who? a highly symbolic mythological story of the ego, presented as a multimedia production. This ancient story teaches that every phenomenon of nature is made up of two forces, the universal force of the macrocosm and the individual force of the microcosm.

The schedule is as follows:
Part I: Selected Dances
1) Saraswati Vandana
