Alokparna Guha

Alokparna Guha is an well-known performer of Kathak Dance. She started her training at the tender age of five. After her initial training from Sri Pradipta Neogi, she went through long and rigorous ‘riyaz’ under the tutelage of the Kathak exponent Dr. Malabika Mitra. She has imbibed the essence of the two prominent gharanas or schools of Kathak- Jaipur and Lucknow. The vigor of Jaipur and the tender delicacy of Lucknow are beautifully blended in her performance.

Alokparna is a Senior Diploma holder from Prayag Sangeet Siksha Samity (Allahabad). She received the Gold Medal from the Society of Rabindra Bharati University. She also performs on Calcutta Television. She has received unrestrained praise from connoisseurs for her performances both in India and abroad.

She is equally admired for her solo performances of Kathak as well as choreographed productions of original works. Her workshops and lecture demonstrations on the technical and Abhinaya (expression) aspects of Kathak have immensely benefited students of all nationality.

Besides her expertise in dance, she has also obtained a master's degree in English literature. However, her life's mission is to perform and spread Kathak dance with no limits.
