Quotes By Critics
Odissi Dance Exponent Guru Sharon Lowen

"Richa Jain is a Kathak dancer with a difference. She has eschewed the little affectations that sometimes clutter the performances of her peers and offered a finely openhearted abhinaya in her Sufi Gyan Aaree Sakhi More Piya Ghar… and a refreshingly gentle sparkle to her Nritta in Raag Adana in Teen Tal concluding to the tune of Achyutam Keshavam"

The Hindu, Critic Smt. Leela venkataraman

“Richa Performed her Teen tala nritta with the ease of an experienced campaigner. She was in effortless control, confidently changing rhythmic accents and the drut laya sequences showed a dancer with enviable training. The combined Jaipur/Lucknow gharana expertise was in full flow in the dancer”

Statesman ,New Delhi by critic Smt. Manjari Sinha

“There used to be a time when Kathak dancers used to be dancers, percussionists and vocalists all rolled into one ; or atleast capable of singing for their expressional numbers themselves , but barring Pt. Birju Maharaj, Uma Sharma and Urmila Nagar, there is hardly any artiste in the present generation to do this. Richa Jain successfully meets this criterion by her versatility. She is a brilliant dancer and a melodious singer too
