About the Course

At this level, the learnings are taken ahead following the diktats of Bharatanatyam. The highlights of the course include - 

  • Alarippu: This dance involves moving your eyes, neck, hands, and shoulders, along with tricky leg movements. You'll do this dance at different speeds.
  • Kauthuvam: In this dance, you'll start by saying rhythmic sounds and then sing a song about a god or goddess. This makes your expressions and dance moves even better.
  • Jathiswaram: This is a dance all about patterns. You'll do different foot and body movements to a simple music tune.
  • Shabdam: Imagine telling a story with dance moves. This dance uses words to help tell a story.

You'll learn these dances when you reach the intermediate level of your learning journey.
