DANC 049F. Repertory/Ensemble: Kathak

This is a moderate level technique course on Kathak. We will work on teen tala or metrical scale of sixteen beats to learn complex rhythmical structures called bols. The various patterns of bols such as tukra, tehai and paran will also be explored. The two aspects of Kathak technique nrtta (abstract movement) and nritya (expressive gestures) will be used for a final composition.
​The final composition will be presented in a scheduled student dance concert.
A dance technique course taken concurrently is highly recommended.
