About the Event
Join Pamela Wise for an interesting discussion with Gretchen Hayden, an internationally recognized performer and teacher of kathak dance. Gretchen Hayden, the daughter of actor/author/seafarer Sterling Hayden and Betty DeNoon Hayden, and stepdaughter of Catherine Devine Hayden, credits these parents for filling her developing years with art, beauty, nature, creativity, and original thinking. Gretchen, a senior disciple of the renowned master and guru, Pandit Chitresh Das, has dedicated the last twenty-seven years to fostering kathak dance in New England. She and her husband, sarodist George Ruckert, carry on the legacy of kathak and Hindustani and, together with a few others, initiated the founding of MITHAS (MIT’s Heritage for the Arts of South Asia). Their collaborative original works weave tradition into innovative dance solos and dramas. Come learn more about this amazing dancer. Pamela Wise, herself an accomplished professional ballet dancer, interviews talented dancers in the Boston area. Register to obtain the Zoom link.
