Kathak



Kathak is an important classical dance form of India, and an increasingly popular theatre art form of the world. The word Kathak is derived from katha, meaning "storytelling." It’s a dance form which tells a story. Originally, this community of artists known as ‘Kathakars’ narrated stories in temples of North India. It is a partially narrative dance form characterized by fast footwork (tatkar), spins (chakkar) and innovative use of bhav in abhinaya.
Today, Kathak, not only in India, but throughout the world, is recognized as one of the seven classical dance forms of India. Presently, this classical dance is characterized by a combination of the temple and court forms, inclusive of both the devotion and romantic form that has shaped it through the years.
