Special Sunday with Gaura Nataraj Dasa - Sep 18th

1:30:00 AM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav)

The Toronto Hare Krishna Temple is excited to welcome Gaura Nataraj Dasa to our community.  An exceptional dancer, Gaura Nataraj will be presenting a special series of classical Bharatnatyam dances during this upcoming Sunday Feast on Setember 18, 2016.

Gaura Nataraj das (Aleksey Furdak) was born in 1989 to Russian parents in Riga, Latvia and started learning Bharata Natyam at the age of 15.

His first teacher was Pille Roosi (Estonia) who was his guide in the world of Indian dance for over 10 years. Gaura Nataraj participated in countless workshops (by Priyadarsini Govind, Rama Vaidyanathan, Parshwanth Upadhye, Mavin Khoo to name a few). Now he continues his training online at eAmbalam under the guidance of Smt. Indira Kadambi.

Gaura Nataraj also studies drawing and painting as well as ancient Armenian music instrument duduk.
