Upasana Dance Company has the great honour of presenting Pandit Birju Maharaj and his group on Friday, July 6, 2018 at the Canadian Museum of History at 7:30 P.M. Artistic Director, Saveeta Sharma is delighted to be celebrating Maharaji ji’s 80th birthday with him in this hallmark tour.
The evening is an homage to our Guru and the lineage of the Lucknow Gharana. The blessing of the guru extends for generations – Maharaji, Sharma herself, and her students. Ottawa is fortunate to have three generations of artists who are taking forward the legacy and traditions of Lucknow Gharana Kathak.
Please join us in celebrating this incredible lineage of dance music and storytelling with performances by Pt. Birju Maharaj, his disciple Vidushi Saswati Sen, and Ottawa disciples Saveeta Sharma and Deepti Gupta and the next generation of dancers at Upasana.
