The Tradition of North Indian Classical Dance

Kathak evolved out of a unique historical blend of Hindu and Islamic cultures. Originally a devotional dance, rendered in the temples of Northern India as a story-telling art, Kathak later became a highly sophisticated court-dance under Mughal rule, where it was considerably modified for the purpose of entertainment. As a result, Kathak became a dynamic blend of two aspects, the austerely spiritual and the passionately physical. Today, it is one of the most frequently performed dance forms in India, winning its popularity for its highly sophisticated technique and expressive gesture-language.
