Rani Khanum is one of the most sensitive and astute interpreters of Lucknow Gharana of Kathak today and she has been performing professionally for the past thirty years. She brings to her dance a rare sense of devotion and dedication, which leaves the audience with a sense of spiritual fulfilment.

Her style reflects deep comprehension of the dance tradition which has set new dimensions and source of inspirations to the younger generation. While deeply rooted in tradition she has evolved her own individual style in Kathak. She achieved her rigorous training by renowned doyens of Kathak Ustd Fattan Khan, Smt. Reba Vidyarthi and Pt. Birju Maharaj, Rani Khanam graduated with top honours from Kathak Kendra, New Delhi.

Inspired by her intimate knowledge of Islamic and Sufi texts, she has a deep vision to perform on a unique repertoire of Sufiana poetry (Qalam) & Islamic verses, which has received rich reviews.

She is an award winning dancer and choreographer who has performed nationally and internationally.
