Leela Dance Collective


This company and academy was founded by disciples of Pandit Chitresh Das, a master of the classical Indian style kathak. Based in San Francisco, as Das was, Leela Dance has recently opened a branch in New York City, run by Rachna Nivas. On Oct. 21 and Oct. 23, Nivas celebrates the move with a performanc­e at Dixon Place. It’s a solo show, but she isn’t alone; Nivas displays the many sides of her art in conversati­on with four musicians.—B.S. (
