When Anuradha Nag arrived in San Jose from Kolkata (Calcutta) in the spring of 1992, she didn’t have a plan. Her marriage, which had been arranged by her family, anchored her to the South Bay, but she had resisted following the proscribed path to medical school followed by so many relatives, instead heeding her calling for kathak. “ I knew I had to dance,” she says. “I never let anything come between me and my dance.”. Nag has spent the past quarter century inculcating successive generations with her passion for the classical North Indian tradition known for presenting epic Vedic tales with strikingly graceful postures, deft footwork and emotionally vivid facial expressions (an actorly skill set particularly associated with the Lucknow style which Nag embodies). On Friday, her Tarangini School of Kathak Dance celebrates the 80th birthday of her guru, Pandit Birju Maharaj, an international creative force who has advanced kathak as a dancer, choreographer, vocalist, poet and teacher.

Billed as “Parampara,” the event features a performance by Maharaj accompanied by tabla maestro Zakir Hussain, while also showcasing five generations of Maharaj’s kathak lineage, including his senior most disciple Saswati Sen, his youngest son and daughter Deepak Maharaj and Mamta Maharaj, respectively, his grandchildren Ragini Maharaj, Tribhuwan Maharaj and Shinjini Kulkarni and Tarangini students, Hussain’s presence on stage is one sure sign of the reverence with which Birju Maharaj is held,  “He always makes himself available,” Nag says, “Hussain-ji says he has learned so much from Maharaj-ji and the concept of kathak, If Maharaj-ji is there, I have to pointe shoes for black dancers play with him, Performing together over the years, they have an understanding, Everything is impromptu, It’s all chemistry on stage.”..
