WMDI - The Premier Indian Classical Kathak Dance Institution Of Melbourne

The dance form Kathak is derived from the Vedic Sanskrit word Katha meaning “story,” & Kathak in Sanskrit means “someone who tells a story,” or “to do with stories.” Like early Greek theatre, wandering Kathakas communicated stories from the great epics and ancient mythology through dance, songs, and music.

One of the eight most popular forms of Indian classical dances, Kathak, originated from Uttar Pradesh, India. As mentioned, the infamous phrase “Katha kahe so kathak kahave,” the one who tells the story is Kathak. This dance form traces its roots from the tradition of storytellers & is also known as ‘Natavari Nrutya.’


The main structure of a conventional Kathak dance performance tends to follow a progression in tempo from slow to fast, then ending with a dramatic climax. Rhythmic footwork, types of spins, suggestive & subtle expressions are the fortes of Kathak. Traditional Kathak dance presentations include showcasing a Taal in the Nrutta section, performing emotion-filled compositions in the Nrutya section, and presenting extraordinary pieces that have extensions of Kathak dance techniques, e.g., Chatrang, Sargam, Tarana, Trivat, etc.
