FEATURING OUR VISITING FACULTY FOR KATHAK
Rukhmani Mehta (previously Rina Mehta) brings a singular voice and vision to the art form of kathak, classical dance of North India. A disciple of the legendary kathak master, Pt. Chitresh Das, her work demonstrates a firm grounding in tradition paired with an innovative spirit. Described as β€œregal” and β€œbrilliant” by critics, her performances and artistic work are paving a path forward for the art form of kathak.
Rukhmani is a founding artist of the Leela Dance Collective, which brings together leading artists from around the world to advance a collective vision for kathak. Her original works include SPEAK, a kathak-tap collaboration; Son of the Wind, the story of India’s mythological hero, Hanuman, brought to life through dance-drama; and Encounters with Beauty (in development), a collaboration that engages kathak dance in conversation with Western classical chamber music. Her works have toured at prestigious venues across the United States and India such as NC State Live, The Broad Stage, Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, Green Music Center, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, National Centre for Performing Arts Mumbai, and more. She has received funding to create and tour her works from the National Endowment for the Arts, New Music USA, the California Arts Council and the Zellerbach Family Fund.
Mehta is Artistic Director of Leela Youth Dance Company, an elite pre-professional performing group that empowers young South Asian American women to develop their voices and serve as artists and leaders. The Leela Youth Dance Company has been featured at WorldWide Women's Girl's Festival, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Philadelphia Youth Festival, and LA County's Annual Televised Holiday Celebration.

Transcending Borders One Note at a Time, his most recent project, has been described as a β€œroadmap for irresistible aural adventures” (Downbeat Magazine, USA) and seeks to harness the power of music to create positive social change. Driven by a vision for a brighter future, Das is the founder of Harmony and Universality through Music (HUM), a nonprofit organization in India that has promoted global understanding through music performance and provided learning opportunities and scholarships for visually-impaired children with artistic potential since 2009.
