Lucknow gharana: This school took roots and flourished under the stewardship of Pandit Ishwari Prasad. The primary function of Lucknow Kathak since Nawab Wajid Ali Shah’s patronage was courtly entertainment, and hence much emphasis is laid on the rich variety of facial expression, and grace and charm of the performer. Contextually, Lucknow Kathak is more sensory and aesthetically elevated.
