Toying with our creative side awakens our ability to approach life with greater openness and curiosity. Nidhika Loomba explains how the classical Indian dance Kathak feeds her soul and ignites her passion. She explains what we can learn about life through creative expression, and gives a 4-minute demonstration of the elegant stances, rhythmic intensity, swift swirls and elaborate foot work of Kathak.

Nidhika is a business analytics graduate student at Bentley University. Before coming to United States, she helped build up a startup e-commerce company for 4+ years as its supply chain manager. Apart from her professional life, Nidhika is passionate about dancing and believes that movement is her best form of expression. She has been trained in the Indian classical dance form and has rendered more than 100 stage performances in various countries.
