About KathakDharohar

Kathak Dharohar was established in the year 2012 to create awareness about the cultural heritage of our country particularly about the Kathak form of dance amongst the common people, marginalized and deprived sections of the society and contribute in maintaining the originality of Kathak dance.

The society has crossed many a milestones in a brief period of four years. Several workshops were organized by the members of the Kathak Dharohar and noted Kathak Guru Shri Rajendra Kumar Gangani to train the children about the basics of Kathak dance. Children from slums, tribal areas; of leprosy patients, prostitutes; handicapped children, and from different quarters of the society participated in the workshops. These helped to realize the inherent talents and restore the self esteem of the children. In addition Kathak Dharohar has also provided children opportunities to demonstrate their dancing skills and talents.

The sustainable work of the society carried out thus far has strengthened the resolve of its members to spread the cultural connotations of our country far and wide and keep the lamp of Kathak dance and its traditions lighted eternally.
