Kathak Dance is one of the major classical dances of Northern India and performed for centeries.  It is an art of story telling where dancers tell stories by creating rhythm with the feet, by using stylized gestures and movements, and with facial expressions.  The whirling movements, musical footwork, high speed energetic turns and striking poses are key features of this dance form.
