Kathak E-mail

Friday I walked through the pouring rain (yes, long live the Netherlands) and get wet all over me as I began to wonder why I was proud to wind and weather. A few seconds later, arrived in the classroom, missing all despair and once the dancing beaten me I could not imagine ever doubted it. Hard to describe what I did think, but I have only one attempt: It sounds like flowerpower down a bit, but during the dances of Kathak, you have a little feeling to float and chasing adrenaline through your body as you actually that one difficult pass graceful and elegant at the highest speed can perform. There is quite some discipline involved, but that makes the dance and practice it is only interesting on.

My words do not dance enough honor to make a really good idea and can get you could have a Kathak-action behold. For now, a bit of theory should suffice:

Kathak, classical dance from North India, is derived from the word "Katha", which means story. Kathak, telling religious stories, was formerly mainly danced in temples. Kathak is around 1550 from the holy text "Natya Shastra" operative.

The dance that we can admire today is developed by a group Kathakdansers, the Kathakas, who traveled throughout India so through song, dance, acting Hinduism to share with the people. For several invasions of the Indian history, Kathak is the most affected by the rule of the Muslim Moghul. The kings of the Moghul kept firm control of all forms and expressions of art, which shifted from a Kathak dance sacred temple to a court dance to entertain the rulers. The Indian dancers, some elements of the dancers of the Moghul, but are also influenced by the Persian dance and music that they brought with them. Kathak in its present form is a good result of merging two different cultures.

Just when most forms of dance in Hinduism, the popular song which is based on the scale "Go Sa Re Ma Pa Ni DHA. Kathak has a very high rhythmic content, the dance is basically the fast footwork (the "steps") and turning circles. The base lies in the size of 16 counts, each danspas is due to this count. The basic rhythm is based on eight counts (half of 16) and reads as follows: "Ta Thei Thei Tat, Aa Thei Thei Tat. (Alternating right-left, always starting with the right.) In addition, facial expression, hand gestures and elegance is a very important role. During the dances are ghungroo's, the sound of bells that emphasize the steps, worn.

The dance can be practiced by men and women and often depicts the stories of Radha and Krishna. The idea behind the dance is the beauty of life and therefore contains the dance rarely static poses and is constantly, in varying speeds, movement in the implementation.

The above piece of theory is sufficient for long, especially once a tour, or walking to a lesson in the beauty of this dance, to behold.
