Upasana Performing Arts Center
Upasana offers classes in Kathak, which is a classical dance form from India (originally North India). Its name comes from the word "katha" which literally means "story". Kathak originates from the "kathakars" or storytellers who presented religious and moral instruction in narrative form. Music, mime, and dance became important features of their technique and when this mingled with the decorative dance styles introduced by the Moguls (14th-17th centuries) kathak became a complex movement form capable of dealing with the themes of Hindu myths as well as more contemporary subjects. Subsequently its narrative content became highly refined (that which remained dealing primarily with the stories of Radha and Krishna) and dancers focused on music and rhythm. Kathak performers are noted for their virtuosic fast turns and stamping footwork, whose rhythms, exaggerated by ankle bells, develop into highly complex metrical sequences.
