The online Bharatnatyam course introduces students to a deeply spiritual dance form. It initiates the students into an expressive dance form that rests on the 4 core elements of the dance - Bhavam (expression), Ragam (melody), Talam (rhythm), and Natyam (dance). Bharatanatyam is a composite art form embracing the elements of nritta and natya
Bharatnatyam is characterized by precise dynamic and rhythmic footwork, hand gestures, and facial expressions. Dancers usually depict religious stories from epics and mythologies in praise of the Lord. A signature of this art form is the expression of divinity. To be a true exponent of the art, a dancer must have the ability to achieve spirituality through dance, dissolving their identity in the rhythm and the music, and experiencing Bhakti (devotion) from the soul.
Throughout the course, the students shall learn the basics of Bharatanatyam (including Namaskaram and warm-up exercises) and master the basic Adavus i.e. basic dance moves along with mudras (hand gestures) and other body movements (head, neck, and eye movements).
