Pursue course of Kathak or Tabla from Rajasthan University and get degree on the completion


If you are looking to make your career in Tabla instrument or Kathak dance, then this is good news for you.

Rajasthan University has added Kathak and Tabla as subjects in the syllabus of Bachelor of Performing Art Course (BPA). The course is pursued in a span of 4 years. While Kathak has been added in Dance Category, Tabla has been included in instrument category.

Kathak is one of the oldest among the eight dance forms of Indian classical dance but it is for the first time that a dance form has been included in the curriculum by Rajasthan University. Before this, Rajasthan University has  always focused on classical singing.

As far as courses related to Kathak dance are concerned, diploma course of Kathak is done at few places in Jaipur, but since the centres do not have validity from Rajasthan University, students have to face a lot of difficulties.

Kathak has its own ‘Gharana’ in Jaipur and since now it has been added in the curriculum, it shall get connected at academic level also.

There has been regular and continuous demand from artists and students to university for arranging a diploma course and providing degree at the end of the course. Finally University has come up with a decision which shall benefit several students and artists.
