Hello, DF'ers!

A ginormous thank you to everyone contributing to this site. Your posts have provided so much context, perspective, information and food for thought. I have been dancing for about three years now in a tiny, mainly social, dance community. Sometimes it feels like a struggle to cobble together enough instruction, but your posts have provided a valuable adjunct to that instruction and, more importantly, a wonderful perspective on all those little doubts and worries that can so easily undermine a beginner. My humble thanks to all of you, and especially the moderators, who have made this site a daily read for well over a year now. Hugs from this nearly anonymous reader.

As for me, I'm a social dancer, still a newbie, who loves her little community, loves to learn and loves the athleticism, precision, artistry, creativity, focus, etc. of dance. Or maybe I should just say I love dance itself!

Happy dancing to all of you!!

Welcome to Dance Forums! I am not familiar with Kathak dancing, and many of our members may not be either. Can you tell us a little about this type of dance? Did you start dancing as a child, or not until you were an adult?
 
Thank you .. Kathak dance is traditional dance, the word katahak is derived from sanskrit word "Katha" means telling story...This dance developed in middle age...it was generally played for praying lord Krishna ...
after some time it was accepted by courts of North India Kingdoms.
This dance contains many hand movements and foot steps played on the rhythm of tabla and other traditional Indian musics and Laya-Tals..
 
Hello, I'm Xelebes. Raver and swing dancer here from Canada. I also do country dance but that is usually done at cousins weddings. I'm one of those dweebs who will avoid going to classes or seeking instructors because. . . I don't mix well with classrooms. So I remain an amateur and am happy with that.

I also make my own music. Mostly techno but do experiment with country and swing with it.
