Pagrav Dance Company
Pagrav Dance Company was founded by Artistic Director Urja Thakore in 1983. It was originally based in India and specialized in promoting Indian Folk Dances and Classical art-forms all over the country.
Now located in the UK, the company promotes traditional Kathak Dance in its purest form, whilst giving it a modern context and presentation. Alongside full performances, the company aims to provide a platform for emerging dancers based in Milton Keynes and London. In 2009 Pagrav Dance Company successfully toured its first full scale work Baharan to 8 different venues across the UK.
'Some magical Kathak elegance was conjured out of the smoke and mirror that set the stage for HATS, an epic solo by Urja Desai Thakore. ... I would have swapped it readily for just one more moment of magic from Urja Desai Thakore.' - Graham Watts, Resolution!2010
