Pulse of India: Folk Dance with Kinnari Vora

Ishti Collective celebrates expression, shares joy through collaborative practices, and fosters meaningful dialogue through radical acts of dance, storytelling, and artistic risk-taking. Our purpose is to create an environment where artists engage with the community to generate meaningful and accessible works that reflect our current times.


Ishti has performed and taught folk dance at Chicago Summer dance, various Chicago Park Districts and CPS. This workshop will be guided by Ishti’s Artistic Co-chair Kinnari Vora. Kinnari grew up in Gujarat, India and learnt these folk forms as social practice before she joined a professional company where she was trained in dances from other regions of the country. Kinnari is excited to share the joy of these folk dances with the community.
