Nahid Siddiqui – Surrey Muse

Nahid Siddiqui is a classical Kathak dancer, choreographer and mentor who lives and works in Pakistan and England. Her organization, Nahid Siddiqui & Company was established in 1991, and since then it has presented 16 master-class productions earning various awards and distinctions around the world including Pakistan’s Pride Of Performance. Nahid’s most valuable contribution is to evolve her own expression and style infusing new themes in a classical dance. Her exploration and infusion of Sufianic thoughts and words within the context of kathak has brought this traditional dance to a new level of excellence. Nahid has introduced Kathak in the curriculum of the University of Surrey (UK) and other educational institutions by making it accessible through performances and educational outreach programs such as workshops, master classes and residencies. Her work has received support from West Midlands Arts Board and Arts Council of England. Her most recent production was presented at the Royal Ballet. Nahid learned her art from Maharaj Ghulam Hussain Kathak and Pandit Birju Maharaj.
