Upcoming performances in Spring 2012

Join us for the Spring 2012 leg of the tour of Kathakbox, which has been wowing audiences and critics across the UK and internationally:

“Kathakbox is a pleasure from start to finish. It creates a positive and energetic atmosphere where we are all one and dance is a joyous means of expression and fun.” Laura Dodge, Dance Europe

“A clever interweaving of two distinct art forms, bringing out the subtle nuances of their mutuality… making us all feel a part of the unifying Kathakbox.” Graham Watts, Dancing Times
