KOCHI: One normally associates kathak to the twirls and rapid footwork. But kathak is not just about the dynamic pirouettes and complex footwork. Not many are aware of the story and history behind the dance form. Noted kathak exponent Monisa Nayak hopes to introduce the mesmerising world of Kathak to the dance enthusiasts in the city this week.
