Kathak is one of the several traditional dance forms of India hailing from the northern states. It is narration of a Katha or story in a dance. The sound of Ghungroo (bells) tied around the dancer's ankles co-ordinates with the tabla beats of the music. It takes several years to master this art. !
Kathak (Hindi: कथक) is one of the eight forms of Indian classical dance. This dance form traces its origins to the nomadic bards of ancient northern India, known as Kathakars or storytellers. Its form today contains traces of temple and ritual dances, and the influence of the bhakti movement.
