Jaymini Sahai 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 at the tender age of 6, 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 and has performed for Her Majesty the Queen on several occasions including Royal Academy of Arts and Harewood House in Harrogate for the Golden Jubilee celebrations.
She set up her company, "Aradhana", to present Kathak in it's original pure form. In addition to performing and choreographing her own productions, Jaymini is a teacher of Kathak and holds regular classes, lecture demonstrations and residencies. Jaymini has choreographed for Geraldine Connor's spectacular production of "Carnival Messiah" which toured the UK and Trinidad and Tobago. She has also worked with Flamenco musicians and dancers to present Kathak in a new light, working seamlessly to show the similarities of the 2 styles. Jaymini has also experimented with Western Classical Music, choreographing Kathak to Beethoven's Concerto #1 and Vivaldi's Spring.
She brings together beauty, grace, strength and elegance in her style and is not one to be missed.
