About the Teacher

Sangita Chatterjee, the disciple of Guru Smt. Vaswati Misra, is a young, dynamic, and eminent exponent of Kathak, from Lucknow Gharana. She has imbibed within herself the essence of Kathak, its lyrical movements, a treasure of its scintillating rhythmic patterns, and subtle abhinaya.

Sangita has emerged as a soloist of par excellence and has made her niche as a thinking dancer whose approach toward dance is beyond mere performative presentation. Having a double M.A. in History & Tourism Management and Kathak from Khairagarh University, Sangita's work is mostly self-reflecting, thought-provoking, and collaborative in nature.

Sangita also represented India in Delphic Games, South Korea in 2009.

She has extensively traveled to different countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, and America for performances and lecture demonstrations. During the lockdown, she has also created two short films "Quest - A lockdown diary of a dancer" and 'Mirage-A lust for life" which were also featured in INMOTION Dance Film Festival Chicago. Sangita is an empaneled artist of ICCR, SPICMACAY & Ministry of Culture and awarded with Sringar Mani, Jayadev Samman, Woman achievers award, etc.
