This one is derived from the word Katha meaning story, and during the whole dance, the dancers narrate stories through their eyes and expressions. Kathak is believed to be originated in North India where Kathakars (storytellers) used to travel to different places to communicate stories from ancient scriptures like Ramayan, Mahabharat, and Lord Krishna stories through dance, music, and songs. It got its name from the word "Katha" which means "story" in English. It is known for its spins, outstanding rhythmic footwork, however, it also involves hand gestures, facial expressions, and eye work. Both male and female dancers can be seen dancing together in this form of classical dance.
