"What started as an experiment to carry on a legacy, has turned into a successful dance company, The Leela Dance Collective. They have provided incredible experiences to audiences all over the world. I had the pleasure of having an in-person conversation recently with the lovely Rina Mehta, co-artistic director, at Soho Dance LA Studio, where Rina teaches. I was so excited to observe her class and learn more about kathak dance, a classical dance form that originates from Northern India. It is engaging, percussive and a joy to watch." - Annett Bone.
