Kathak, Indian Classical Dance Form, which originated in northern India, represents one of the eight forms of Indian classical dance.

Kathak has been enriched by the confluence of many cultures over the course of history. It embodies and reflects the dance characteristics of these cultures. Drama, emotion and dance technique comprise the three main aspects of Kathak. The elements of Kathak include linear and circular extensions of the body, controlled hand and body movements’, intricate and rhythmic footwork and fast pirouettes. These elements, when combined with a dancer’s exuberance and interpretation, make it a compelling and evocative form of dance expression.
