An introduction to the idea of fusing Kathak dance with other styles such as hip hop. Understanding rhythm by exploring different contexts. Actress and choreographer Shobana Gulati explains how dance motifs from different styles merge in order to create a more contemporary version of a classic style. We see her working with a group of young people who demonstrate and comment on the use of specific movements. Reference is made to Janet Jackson's music and dance being ideally suited to this type of fusion.
