Learn Kathak online




Kathak is a 5000 year old artform. It is a beautiful amalgamation of historic influences from Hindu and Mughal cultures. Incorporating rhythm, poetry, storytelling, footwork, hand gestures and facial expressions; Kathak is a graceful yet dynamic art form, which brings discipline to anyone who learns it. 

DNC began teaching ONLINE Kathak classes during the Covid-19 pandemic. During this time, many new people joined from all over the UK and flourished under the structured training methods and guidance they received from Nikita and her team of teachers. Along with current students, many reported that the online classes enhanced their physical and mental wellbeing.

Due to increased interest in the number of people wanting to learn online, DNC is now offering online classes for kids and adults as an ongoing option. Alongside weekly classes on MS Teams, resources are sent such as; instructional videos, podcasts and handouts to help students practice at home. ALL students are invited to be part of a community DNC WhatsApp group and receive mentoring and support from Nikita, to achieve their full potential.

What Our existing Students Say

I was a bit nervous starting a Beginners Adult class online. However, this dissipated very quickly because the teaching is a very well rounded and paced insight into the ancient art form of kathak, with new concepts being incorporated into basics, the latter are continually worked on, and advice given on how to improve and embed all basics into your dance. This is all implemented in a fun and relaxed environment, and Nikita is always available for questions and queries.

I have had a really positive experience at DNC on the beginner’s kathak class – it has enriched my life mentally, physically and spiritually. I enjoyed my course so much that I have enrolled again. Nikita has created a really inspiring environment to learn in, and with her classical background, it is a privilege to learn from her. I would highly recommend DNC to anyone who would like high quality teaching in a friendly and calming setting.
