Breaking away from the traditional format of classical kathak performances, which are typically structured like lecture-demonstrations, Aditi Mangaldas prefers to work around a thematic core. Every performance is a powerful weaving together of the two key aspects of the dance form - the technical and the expressive - to showcase the rich legacy of kathak.

“Aditi’s production has now acquired international reputation. In major capitals of Europe she has been wowing audiences” Dr. Sunil Kothari,

“…spectacular was Aditi Mangaldas, whose Kathak, while innovative, derived totally from parampara.” Leela Venkatraman, The Hindu
