Rani Khanam is one of the most sensitive and astute interpreters of Lucknow Gharana of Kathak today. She has earned great name for her dexterity, subtle footwork and rhythmic patterns. Trained by renowned doyens of Kathak namely Smt. Reba Vidyarthi and Pt. Birju Maharaj at Kathak Kendra, New Delhi. As an artiste, Choreographer and Guru, she always strives for excellence. Her style reflects deep comprehension of the dance tradition which has set new dimensions and source of inspirations to younger generation.

Coming from a conservative Muslim family in Bihar,where dance was not considered an art but only a form of entertainment that did not deserve any respect, Khanam braved many rules,regulations,oppositions and ostracisation to carve a niche in the world of dance, pass on her gift to many others,make dance a therapy for those who are physically challenged and also fight for the rights of Muslim women in India. She is a true inspiration!
