2015 is the year that the 3rd Bollywood and Multicultural Dance Festival hosts a great and extraordinary event. With the support of Embassy of India in Greece and valuable sponsorship of the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), the organizers give the Athenian audience the chance to see for the first time in Greece, a great Indian Kathak group led by the famous teacher and dancer Ms. Swati Wangnoo Tiwari.
The Kathak dance, a classic sample of the art of dance in India, is creating bridges between the cultural heritage and the modern society, proving that India is a great and wonderful country which combines the future with the past, respecting their unique history.
The group will be presented in two amazing Shows of the Festival (Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 of July 2015) at Technopolis City of Athens. Ms. Swati will also teach techniques and choreographies of this unique dance, in two master classes (Saturday and Sunday).
Furthermore, in a special honorary event which will take place on Sunday, July 5 at 19:00 in the Amphitheater of Technopolis, the First Secretary of Indian Embassy in Athens, Mr. Ram Verma will present the group to the Athenian audience.
