Regional Pick – Dancers Collection

I love the expression of inner joy that one sees on the faces of dancers when they are performing what they love. To capture those precious moments, I decided to paint a series called the ‘Dancers Collection’.

I am a self taught artist who paints as a hobby and haven’t sold anything yet. I have joined the Drawing Academy and the Web Art Academy to learn techniques from the masters and I must say I am very glad that I did as I am learning new things every day.

In my series, one of the paintings is a dancer from the region of Pakistan and India where this form of classical dance i.e. Kathak is very popular and can only be performed by very seasoned and technically well trained dancers.

Kathak dancers are beautifully dresses in ornate outfits with elegant jewellery and small bells on their anklets which are called ‘ghungroo’ and they master the art of controlling the ringing of these small bells with the movements of their feet. The dress they wear has a frock like top called the ‘peshwaz’ and on the legs are a tight garment called ‘tung pajama’.

These dancers traditionally performed in the courts of the rulers i.e. Kings, Rajas and Nawabs of India. While the courts of these rulers are no more, they dance at theaters and auditoriums and can be seen in movies of the region.

Warm regards,
