Kathak

One of the eight forms of Indian classical dances. This dance form traces its origins from the nomadic bards of ancient northern India known as Kathakars or Story tellers. Today this dance form contains traces of temple and ritual dances and the influence of the ‘Bhakti Movements’. From the 16th century onwards it absorbed certain features of Persian dance and central Asian dance which were imported by the royal courts of Mughal Era.
