With movements and steps similar to those of ballet, the classical Kathak dance, from northern India, will be performed in the style by two of its greatest exponents: Vidha Lal and Abhimanyu Lal. The Indian dancers will be accompanied by five musicians on Dec. 18 at a theater in Cardenas, central province of Matanzas, and at Havana’s Miramar Theatre on Dec. 19. As a multifaceted performer of Kathak, Vidha Lal has become a star, setting a record of 103 spins in one minute in 2011. The Kathak dance performances in Cuba close a Latin American tour of these Indian artists that took them to Nicaragua, Panama, and El Salvador.

Date: 18th & 19th December
Venue: Havana’s Miramar Theatre
