Correct option is
D

Northern India

Kathak is one of the ten major forms of Indian classical dance. Kathak is found in three distinct forms, named after the cities where the Kathak dance tradition evolved – Jaipur, Banaras and Lucknow. Stylistically, the Kathak dance form emphasises rhythmic foot movements, adorned with small bells, and the movement harmonised to the music. The legs and torso are generally straight, and the story is told through a developed vocabulary based on the gestures of arms and upper body movement, facial expressions, stage movements, bends and turns.
