There's a different challenge and excitement in teaching students who come with many years of training in different dance forms and movement techniques. Chinese dancer, actress and yoga teacher, Lesley @lesley.yoga, was a dream to teach during one week of intensive classes at Tridhaara. Although it was her first time learning Kathak, Lesley's foundation in Ballet, Chinese traditional dance and Yoga (along with her love for all things Indian) helped her breeze through Kathak basics. In one short week, she left having learnt to present an entire 8 minute choreography - Guru Vandana, a sargam geet in Taal Dadra, and technical pieces in Teentaal Madhya/Drut Laya.
