Press comments

“Essay in aesthetics".............
LEELA VENKATARAMAN, THE HINDU. Dec 2014.


“Parampara - Ek Pravaah' , was an enthralling display of Kathak virtuosity ;.....what amazed me was the grace of Mr. Shah's arms and upper body...Despite his top-speed footwork and its stop-on-a-dime conclusions, his arms moved in waves, rivulets, soft flurishes, always demonstrating calm and ease within brilliance"..........
ALASTAIR MACAULAY....THE NEW YORK TIMES, APR. 2015


“…Prashant has carved a niche for himself as a brilliant dancer and acquired expertise by exploring various intra forms of Kathak, revealing the beauty of Kumudini’s style, which though rooted in traditional Lucknow gharana, appears novel”…………
Dr. SUNIL KOTHARI, THE HINDU, January 2014


"...male Kathak dancers must know the art of changing the energy of a hall from Prashant Shah. He came already immersed in his mood to dance....Prashant's attempt at abhinaya was well executed......................."
VEEJAY SAI, NARTHAKI ,Dec 2014
