Kathak (कथक) is the Hindi name for one of the eight major forms of Indian classical dance. The term Kathak is derived from the Vedic Sanskrit word Katha which means "story", and Kathaka which means "the one who tells a story". Kathak is the enigmatic, energetic, classical dance form of Northern India. A long journey from the temples of India to the courts of the mughal rulers, even the mehfils of the baijis, to films, yet always retaining its essence – flowing … lucid … graceful. Kathak becomes the base of most of the modern dance forms including the famous Bollywood dances which have been an attraction for all.
Kathak is found in three distinct forms, called "gharanas", named after the cities where the Kathak dance tradition evolved – Jaipur, Banaras and Lucknow. The dance involves invisible presence of the dreams and ambition through delicate footwork, circular movements, melody of ghungrus accompanied with the facial expressions. Today Kathak is well renowned and recognized as one of the most popular cultural dances from India. It is a sought after subject across the world when it comes to the cultural dances across the world.
