India is a melting pot of culture and traditions. Well, you must have got the cue what we are going to discuss-Dance forms in India. Hardly one can find any other country apart from India boasting of such rich dance forms. Indian dance form is full of intricate steps which really takes a toll on any layman to get versatility in it. Let’s enjoy.
From down South, let’s move up Northern India and experience another classic dance form- Kathak. Even though the etymological meaning of the word 'Kathak' means 'to tell a story', the story telling part is done in close coordination with the fine dance movements. Going by the techniques of the Kathak form, the emphasis is much on the feet movements than the hand gestures. The performer ties ankle bells (known as ghungroos) around the feet and creates a synchronized sound as she steps in the stage with a master's control.
