Kajori Purkayastha

Kajori Purkayastha

Kajori has been dancing with Punam Kumar since she was six years old, along with her twin sister Meghna. Kathak has been a large part of her life, bringing her lifelong friends and mentors, as well as a deep connection to her heritage. She completed her Samarpan in the summer of 2012, where she learned to appreciate the nuanced art of expression (Abhinaya), rigorous footwork, and most of all, Kathak fusion (especially when it combines her love of Spanish music)! Kajori obtained her Bachelor’s degree from UCLA in 2016 and her Master’s degree from Berkeley in 2018. She currently works as an Environmental Engineer in Los Angeles. Kajori is also an avid backpacker and canoer, and enjoys spending her time outdoors.

Shivam Arts School of Kathak Dance has multiple locations across Southern California and is now enrolling new students!
