The word ‘Kathak’ is derived from a Hindi word ‘Katha’ meaning ‘Story’ – a story being narrated through the Kathak dance. As everyone likes stories, Kathak dance is also based on narrating a story in which facial expression and style matters. In Kathak Dance style the dancing skills include recitation, singing, and acting along with dancing. Their performance in Bharatanatyam is rooted in traditional, yet with accessibility to new audiences. The themes they present, whether are of emotions or more mythological and symbolic nature. Though the dance is rooted in the Hindu faith, it also takes on a secular quality as the emotive aspects describe day-to-day life in India. They also see connections between dance and the larger artistic environment in which the dance has developed from the poetry, literature, mythology and temple sculptures.
