As a contemporary dancer and choreographer, Aditi Mangaldas believes that "kathak is not a tether that holds me back, but a deep root from which I draw the strength to grow, to explore new forms, and use the past to evolve a language for the future."

" TIMELESS, a rich textured and multi- layered dance production ..Bursting with high energy, it was a dazzling performance by well trained dancers displaying excellent technique..using Kathak as a springboard she ( Aditi ) cuts across its boundaries to create her exciting signature blend of traditional and new movement vocabulary... India based Aditi Mangaldas needs to be seen more widely in this country so that the audiences are introduced to her varied work. "
