Jonaki Raghavan Kathak Exponent  Profile

Jonaki is a trained exponent of Kathak for over 20 years. She is trained under Guru Dr. Malabika Mitra (Kolkata) and under Late Guru Madhurita Sarang (Mumbai). In her pursuit of learning the nuances of the Dance more deeply, she is presently under the guidance of Guru Shama Bhate (Pune). She holds her Masters in Performing Arts from Nalanda Nritya Mahavidyalaya, Mumbai and currently renders her services as a part time lecturer in the same university.

As a child, Jonaki was fascinated by the tales of the legendary artists that were told to her by her parents and teachers. As she got acquainted with Kathak, and she would constantly inquire others to know more about it. She wanted to know about the forms, steps and loved to follow the progression of the Dance from slow to fast, and how it usually ended with a dramatic climax. Since Kathak was already a cultural phenomenon in the 1980s, the desire to learn it was strongly encouraged in her family. And thus began her extraordinary journey from a regular adolescent to a world icon, becoming synonymous with words like Kathak artist and choreographer.

Today, Jonaki is has become a celebrated dancer of Kathak who has blazed an encouraging trail while bestowing this Dance with dignity and enriching it with a deeper canvas of expression. Every nerve of her body lives and breathes dance. Her pristine performances are cherished by young and old alike. A consummate artist, her musical heritage is revered by her disciples to whom she also teaches the fine balance of combining artistry with keen observation. She is actively involved in teaching at the Nalanda Nritya Kala Mahavidyalaya in this style of Dance and presently trains a large number of students in various categories of first-time learners to advanced students.
