Jaymini Sahai is a Kathak artist based in the UK. She is passionate about performing and teaching dance as well as creating new innovative dance projects.
She is one of the most exciting artists to emerge from the new generation of UK based South Asian dance artists. Beginning her Kathak training in the UK in 1983 under the guidance of Nilima Devi Ji, Jaymini gained her diploma in Kathak in 1995 and since then she has been performing nationally and internationally in both professional productions and community events. She regularly conducts school and community related dance work.
Jaymini has taken further training in Kathak with Padamshree Guru Pratap Pawar Ji and most recently is under the guidance of the beautifully graceful Vidushi Mamta Maharaj Ji, daughter of none other than the world renowned Pandit Birju Maharaj Ji.
She set up Aradhana Arts in 2010 which aims to preserve the traditions of Kathak dance in the UK.
