Seventeen-year-old, Dhriti Swarup, shishya of the esteemed guru, Padmashri Dr. Shovana Narayan will be performing Kathak at the Triveni Auditorium, Triveni Kala Sangam, 205, Tansen Marg, New Delhi. Dhriti started her training in Kathak as a little girl of seven, under Guru Tirath Ajmani, who is Shovanaji’sGuru-Bhai.Even at this tender age, she had a mind of her own, choosing Kathak over Bollywood dance. Under the aegis of ASAVARI, established by Shovanaji in 1979, Dhriti has been trained to be a highly proficient dancer replete with technical and abhinaya skills and an intense grounding in the theory of kathak. A staunch believer in guru-shishya parampara Shovanaji, has inculcated in Dhriti her own sensitivities of righteous practice and trust. Under her expert guidance and after 10 years of intense riyaaz, she performed her ‘Manch Pravesh’ last year at the India International Centre, New Delhi.
Currently a student waiting to start her liberal arts graduation course at Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, New York, USA, Dhriti finds herself involved in photography, social service, and Indian classical vocal music. While being passionate about dance, she aspires to pursue economics as she crosses the threshold of childhood into the real world.
