KATHAK

Under the classical dances in India KATHAK is the most ancient and popular stile of dance. In ancient times Kathak was a kind of telling storys. Storyteller, so called "KATHAKAR" have been wandering from place to place in the whole of India and told the stories about the greatness of gods. In addidtion of course it was also a spiritual discipline. In the later centuries this stile of dance get a classical character by adopting the guidelines which are inherent in the Natayasastra, the authentic textbook of classical indian dance. Kathak does not only focus on the technical aspect (Nritt) of classical cance. It also gives to the dancer a big scope of freedom for improvisation. This fusion together with the unbelievable richness of beautiful expressions of hands, feets and the whole body makes Kathak so unic under the classical dances. To dance is a spiritual way of liberation of the human soul and a prayer to god. The systematic and rhythmic language of the body enables the dancer to express rhythm direct over the whole body in an intensiv, conscious and most beautiful way. It might give him the experience of being a conscious part of the ever evolving creation which experiences the dance as a lively, creative and basic prinziple of life.

To start with Kathak at TARANG no basic knowledge is neccessary. The education is according to the classical indian tradition. But even to this high approach the learning can be enjoyed through the systematic teachingstructure which is adopted to the western conditions.
