WHAT WE TEACH
Kathak

The name Kathak is derived from the Sanskrit word katha meaning story, and katthaka in Sanskrit means she/he who tells a story, or to do with stories. The name of the form is properly katthak.

The story of Kathak begins in ancient times with the performances of professional story-tellers called kathakas who recited or sang stories from epics and mythology with some elements of dance. The traditions of the kathakas were hereditary, and dances passed from generation to generation.

Kathak is a classical dance form from South Asia (originally from North India) and is the national dance of Pakistan. It is a partially narrative dance form characterized by fast footwork (tatkar), spins (chakkar) and innovative use of bhav in abhinaya.

 Classes conducted by highly qualified performers guide you through all the nuances and regular concerts are organized to hone performance skills.

Only group lessons are available on this instrument. Students a young as 6 years may start lessons in kathak dance at the Performers Collective.
