About Kathak


Kathak is one of the oldest dance forms in India, with origins attributed to the traveling bards of ancient northern India, known as Kathakars or storytellers. Wandering Kathakas communicated stories from the great epics and ancient mythology through dance, songs and music. It emphasizes rhythmic foot movements, adorned with small bells (Ghungroo). The story is told through a vocabulary found in the gestures of arms, upper body, and facial expressions. The main focus of the dance becomes the feet and eyes, especially the eyebrows.
