Kathak is a form of classical dance that originated in Northern India and is performed with expressive hand gestures and intrinsic footwork. It is the musical way of narrating a mythological story of ancient Indian scriptures or a portrayal of a lost romantic poetry.   
Kathak is taught under four distinctive Gharanas: Lucknow Gharana, Benaras Gharana, Jaipur Gharana and Raipur Gharana which signify that the prevalence of Kathak is mostly in Uttar Pradesh.  
All movements endowed with grace, spins and articulate gestures and footwork are taught under these Gharanas that predominantly belong to the cities of state Uttar Pradesh in Northern India.
