Mugdha’s journey with the elegance and grace of Kathak.
Kathak dancer Mugdha Savio D’souza is known to transport anyone into a world of graceful movements and expressions where the heart of dance truly lies.
Mugdha is a trained kathak dancer based out of Pune. She grew up learning dance when she was as young as 10. As a result of her 18-year long stint with dance, she explored the field extensively and mastered several dance forms. Mugdha graduated in performing arts and pursued her masters in Kathak which further led her to perform in several shows not just in India but also around the world.
Apart from being a professionally trained Kathak dancer, Mughda is well- versed in contemporary dance forms as well and has been a part of the reputed Shiamak Davar Dance Academy, the Mecca of dance. “ My experience with Kathak and performing with Shiamak Davar’s dance group is nothing short of being incredible. I’ve learnt various dance forms in the past years and this journey has given me an opportunity to express what I love doing the most, and that is evidently dancing”, Mugdha said.
Mugdha’s impressive repertoire of work ranges from performing for International film festivals, representing India for Kathak in South Korea to performing with Shaimak Davar’s group in Pune and Delhi and performing with her guru and Marathi actor Sharvari Jamenis for various Kathak stage shows.
While Mugdha gained profound experience in dance, the field enabled her to explore another aspect that one rarely dives into. She expressed how dance cinematography is an important element that captures the beauty of any dance form. “ While I learnt dance and performed, I realized how crucial it is for a dancer to see his or her movements captured beautifully on camera. As an art form, dance has many facets like leg and hand movements, facial expressions, body language, etc and while one focuses on one aspect of it, sometimes the other aspects get missed out. I feel every factor has to collectively come across on screen.”
Artists like Mugdha never stop learning and this also makes us realize that there’s so much to explore in any art form. She is now on One Page Spotlight and if you would like to stay updated with her world of dance, follow her here https://www.onepagespotlight.com/Mugdhadances
