Creekers Jamboree with Antara Saha & Urvashie Kissoon

Creekers Jamboree program celebrates Roots and Americana music on the
last Saturday of every month this Summer! The Gowanus Dredgers Canoe
Club welcomes Indian and Bangladeshi music & dance performances by
Antara Saha and Urvashie Kissoon.

Antara Saha
is a trained Indian Classical dancer in the forms of Bharatanatyam and
Kathak. At the age of four she began her dance training in a different
classical dance form, Kuchipudi, under Guru Anil Kumar. Being of Bengali
heritage, her parents wanted her to learn her culture along with dance.
From 2003 to 2007, she received her Bharatanatyam training under Guru
Dabashis Das. From 2007 until his passing in 2020, Antara received her
training and certificate in Kathak under Late Guru Anup K. Das. As a
disciple of Gurus Dabashis Das and Anup K. Das, under their tutelage,
she also received training in traditional dance styles of Bengal (i.e
Rabindra Nritya, Bangladeshi Folk, etc). As of summer 2021, Antara now
teaches dance privately and performs under her own dance banner, Antara
Saha Dance Troupe, in the tristate area.

Antara will be accompanied by musicians Zarrin Maisha and Nadeem Q. Ahmad.

Kissoon began learning Bharatanatyam in 2001 from the Padmalaya Dance
Academy under the guidance of Srimati Guru Raja Rajeshwari. There, she
realized and deepened her love for dance. In 2003, she began her
training in the Lucknow Gharana of Kathak at the East-West School of
Dance from Guru Pandit Satya Narayana Charka. After many years of
studying Bharatanatyam with the Padmalaya Dance Academy, Urvashie went
on to further her knowledge in Bharatanatyam and began her studies in
Kuchipudi in 2008 at Omna Ancient Art under the guidance of Srimati Guru
Gargi Chattopadhyay.

Urvashie is a well-known dancer in the
community and has performed at many prestigious venues in the Tri-State
Area. Some venues are the City Hall of New York, Metropolitan Museum of
Art, South Street Seaport Deepavali Festival, The Yoga Society of New
York, The Hindu Temple Society of New York, Ellis Island, Indian Arrival
Day in Guyana, Phagwa Parade, Trinidad Consulate, Ramayana In The Park,
Flushing Town Hall, to name a few.

In the mid 1800s, Creekers
& Pointers were terms used for rival gangs of the Roosters, a band
of thugs that frequented South Brooklyn and Gowanus. This season, the
Gowanus Dredgers are reconnecting Gowanus regulars and visitors with
events at our Canal. We hope to offer Saturday voyages before shows
south of the active EPA cleanup (location : TBD) but stop by our
boathouse for some hootin good times as the sun sets.

Its free
to attend but donations are encouraged and reservations at $10 are
available for the front two rows & one complimentary beverage.
Performance starts at 5:30pm.
