Daksha Sheth's journey of more than 40 years in dance has culminated into a kinetic and visually stunning dance expression which not only is influenced from classical dance form of Kathak and traditional marital arts of Kalaripayattu, Chhau, but also
explores beyond tradition.
Disha Dance Style workshop was the result of an intention to interact with dance enthusiasts, students and other interested individuals and introduce them to 'Disha.'
A wholistic training in awareness of the body,
flexibility, agility and rhythm is the
starting point in 'Disha.'

The first batch of experiential workshops took place in Ahmedabad in May 2010. The primary aim of the workshop was to introduce Kalaripayattu and 'Disha Dance Style.' Students were also trained in flexibility, stamina and strength.
Each class was supervised by Daksha Sheth herself. Special classes were taken by daughter Isha Sharvani as well. Detailed information on classes can be provided only on request.
