Treditional Kathak

Kathak is a reflection of life itself. A famous contemporary dance choreographer, Pina Bausch, once said to understand what I am saying, you have to know that dance is something other than technique. We forget where the movements come from. They are born from life. Likewise, much of what we recognize as Kathak today was born in Lucknow. It is not hard to recognize this. Where did its nazaqat nafazat, salaami, thaat, mizaaz, and andaaz come from? Above all, the charm of Kathak is the philosophy that less is more. Movements and expressions should not be exaggerated or they will become 'zabardasti' or forced. This is what distinguishes Kathak from other forms of dance, its natural ada or grace., "Many styles dance with their bodies, but you dance with your soul."
