Bharathanatyam is one of the ancient forms of classical dance with a history that goes back more than two thousand years. It is a classical dance style of south India that combines artistic expression with sense of spirituality.
Bharathanatyam can be interpreted as BHA – Bhava (expression) RA – Raga (musical mode) and TA-Talam (Rhythm) originating from the Hindu temples of South India. It strictly complies to the rules in the Natya Shastra and attributes to sage Bharata Muni.
Embellished with intricate hand gestures and elaborate facial expressions, it is the worlds most complete manual for all aspects of performance.
