Kathak originated in north India, more specifically in Utter Pradesh. It is known for its sparkling footwork, fast whirling movements and mimetic dance.

The word Kathak is derived from the name 'Kathakars' meaning story. The dancers told stories from the Ramayana, Mahabharata (Which are famous Indian Epics) and other puranas. These dancers were taught by temple priests who were well versed in dance and music.
