CHITRESH DAS YOUTH COMPANY:

Pandit Chitresh Das founded a youth company with Charlotte Moraga as the Director in 2002.  The Chitresh Das Youth Company (CDYC) was formed to provide youth with the opportunity to study directly under this great master.  Charlotte Moraga, who directed the Youth Company for over a decade under Pandit Das, continues to provide the intensive training and pre-professional performance experience.  In addition to training in technique and theory, members learn history, philosophy, mathematics and spirituality that form the foundation of kathak and the philosophy of Pandit Chitresh Das.
