Kathak I – Canary

Kathak is one of the eight forms of Indian classical dance that traces its origins to the nomadic bards of ancient northern India, known as Kathakars or storytellers. This 30 minute class is for beginner Kathak students that are under 7 years of age. The goal is to give students an introduction to Kathak and students will apply techniques learned throughout the year to a light composition. Techniques include Basic Poses and Mudras, Basic Footwork, 8 Count Turn, Krand, Specific Hand and Body Movements with poise and stories appropriate for the pre-Kathak student. This class pairs well with a Minis Bollywood class to keep these young students engaged in dance where the Kathak provides discipline and Bollywood provides fun and high energy dance.
