The Art Of Kathak - Origination & Types
One of India’s most unique dance forms that talks about the concept of storytelling in a very pleasant way. As a result, the art form brings in a greater change in dancing, in spite of different other dance forms. It consists of great charm, graceful movements, and also beautiful outfits. This dance form was developed into three styles which are, Classical, Contemporary, and Sufi. Along with its speed in terms of art, emotional research, romance as well as devotional poetries, as resulted in great feedback from our customers. Due to this, it gave birth to three Gharanas, which also feature footwork versus acting. These forms are famously known as the Jaipur, Benaras, and the Lucknow Gharana. Accordingly, the Kathakars talk to the audiences about the stories with the help of musical foot movements, facial expressions hand gestures, and eye work.
History of Kathak Dance
Kathak -The Classical Dance Form of India.
It is originated from the Sanskrit word Katha which means Story. A combination of three arts which are music, drama, and dance. You will find this form, both in Muslim and Hindu cultures, thus favoring this dance, and giving equal status to entertainment. Kathak dance form was originated in the village of Northern India, hence the Indian touch explains it all. As a result, many dancers wanted to know about this dance form in India, as well as in other countries. The classical dance form carries a beautiful charm of folk arts and a mixture of traditions, therefore it attracts many people to learn more about it. These Indian dancers living in those days, traveled from one village to another, and from one kingdom to another, consequently growing a beautiful form of art and culture.
Spiritual Touch to the Kathak Dance Realm
These dancers would stop at temples to rest and then later began to perform stories from the great Indian stories, additionally by styling the art and giving it a classical touch. They were encouraged by the Pandits to narrate stories from the great epics, for example, the Ramayan, Mahabharata, Vedas, and also the Puranas. As a result, this led to the foundation for Kathak’s transformation into a temple dance where all the main focus would lie on gods, goddesses, and mythology.

The origin is discovered backed to Sri Ishwari Prasadji, from the resident of the Handia Tehsil of Allahabad. We focus on this Gharana custom, as a result of which there are great highlights in terms of dancing in small Tukdas (pieces). Specifically, these Tukdas are more about the beauty of the body parts, where also ‘GatNikas’ are presented.
They were developed from the banks of the River Ganga. Nevertheless, they had all their focus more on the spiritual characters of life. Their dance and Music form based on Thumri ‘Bol Baant’, which is the specialty of the Banaras Gharana. We focus more on the peaceful classical music of this specific Gharana.
