Kumudini Lakhia is the visionary who created Kadamb School of Dance and Music in 1967 with the sole purpose of promoting the appreciation of Kathak Dance in Ahmedabad and in the state of Gujarat.
Now over 35 years old the school has the reputation of an institution that imparts training in Kathak dance and offers a holistic view of dance education. Kumudini has often said in her interviews that when she is on stage she feels like a queen and this is a lesson she has imparted to all her students that on stage feel like a princess.
Often described as the Queen of Kathak, her dance academy has produced over 70 dance productions which have been staged all over India. Kumudin Lakhia is unique because of her extra-ordinary style comprising creative innovations and refreshing dimensions to the traditional technique that leaves the audience mesmerized.
Today she is 87 and not performing but her school and her productions are still going house full.
