About Aakruti Kathak Kendra:
Aakruti Kathak Kendra is a temple of learning where students are nurtured and mentored by Mangala and Raghav Raj Bhatt so that Kathak as an art form in its purest sense leads students on a path of self discovery, discipline and grace. The only Kathak institute of its stature in South India, Aakruti has been nurturing young talent in Hyderabad since 1992. With the corner stone of learning at Aakruti being the values, devotion and discipline of Gurus, Raghav Raj Bhatt, prime disciple of Padma Vibhushan Pandit Birju Maharaj Ji and Mangala Bhatt, prime disciple of Pandit Durga Lal Ji, students learn the external or physical aspects of Kathak while internalising the philosophy behind the art form, leading to learning that lasts for a life time. Through a range of activities such as weekly dance classes, workshops, lecture - demonstrations as well as research into the interfacing of Kathak with other Indian and Western art forms, Aakruti Kathak Kendra offers its students, Kathak connoisseurs, art aficionados as well as general public multiple ways in which to engage with Kathak.
