Her Words: “I don’t just dance. I perform. I breathe. I see the world disappear. I release my feelings. I lead with my heart. I read down my walls. I stop feeling sad. I lose the pain. I let go. I  smile. No, I don’t just dance, I do so much more.”

Internationally acclaimed Kathak Dancer Anindita Anaam is an exponent of this impressive Indian classical dance form ‘kathak’. Known for her graceful yet powerful performances, Anindita is a recipient of prestigious awards including Jayadev National Dance Award, National Dance Jewel Utkal Odisha, and others. She is the Artistic Director of Sargam Dance School India and has imparted dance training to hundreds of students over the last two decades. She has travelled all over in India, Germany, and the USA, and performed in major festivals like Delhi International Art Festival, BAGC Chicago, New York Kathak Festival, ICCT Memphis, and Kultur Nacht Germany. She is the first Indian dancer to start a free YouTube tutorial channel on Kathak in English to bridge gap of language, since Kathak is primarily taught in the Hindi language. Anindita is also part of grand jury for many national and international dance panels, and is one of few dancers to have shared stage with Grammy awardee musician VM Bhatt. She has been extensively covered by national and international media for her performances and choreographic work on social issues.

Renowned Pointe Shoes maker ‘Gaynor Minden’ to be part of WDC Conference 2019!!

Gaynor Minden retains the classic beauty of lustrous pink satin and elegant tapered lines, but with a completely modernized interior to meet the needs of today’s athletic dancers. They are made with expert American hand-craftsmanship, the most up-to-date athletic materials, and first-hand knowledge of ballet. The designer and almost the entire team are former dancers. Manufactured in Lawrence, Massachusetts.

They are going to put up a stall at Reedsburg CAL Center on August 17, 2019 from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm

*First 5 sign ups receives an Accessories Package!

Best Quality:

Gaynor Mindens do not stretch or deteriorate the way traditional shoes do. The extremely tight fit of a traditional shoe anticipates the shoe stretching out and “mushing in”. The satin does not stretch the way other satin does.
