Learn about the Indian classical dance form of Kathak in this fun, educational, and interactive workshop with kathak dancer Jin Won of the Taalim School of Indian Music.  No experience necessary.



Kathak is among the major classical dances of India, known for its fast-paced footwork, dizzying spins (known as chakars), grace, and storytelling.   With influences from the Bhakti movement, temple and ritual dances of India, Persian and central Asian dance forms, Kathak emerged from the confluences of cultures over time in northern India.  Kathak’s evolution continues as it has made it’s way into modern Indian dance forms as the most popular classical dance used in Bollywood dancing.
