Ghungru are ankle bells worn by Kathak dancers. They serve a functional purpose by adding more sound dimension to Kathak’s rhythmic footwork, but they are also decorative. They should be balanced to the height of each dancer, meaning that dancers of different heights and age groups may wear different numbers of ankle bells. Ghungru are bound on white cotton rope and in order to achieve the optimum sound quality, they should be loosely bound.
Children: 25 – 50 on each foot
Youth and adults: 75 – 100 on each foot
