In this level two beginner Bharatanatyam course that spans the duration of 24 weeks, the student will learn the following topics:
Anga Shudham (Body alignment): The physical structure of Bharatanatyam conceives the body in linear lines and conceives movement in space mostly in straight lines, triangles, or circles. After completion of the level 1 course, students should already have had a clear understanding of the upper torso alignment and the Aramandi position. Hence, in the level 2 course, more attention would be given to the use of eyes, head, and neck in coordination with the body movements. Students would be given a direction on how they can add grace to the body despite maintaining these linear lines.
Adavus level 2: Adavus are the basic steps of Bharatanatyam which are a combination of footwork and hand gestures. Students would be taught the next 5 sets of Adavus (after completion of adavu 1 to 4 in the level 1 course) in this course. They would be made to practice the adavus to 3 speeds. The understanding of Jaati would be further developed by the introduction of Khanda Jaati. Students would be given a basic introduction to the concept of 'Jaati' (Combination of adavus).
Asamyukta Hasta Viniyoga: Understanding and practicing applications of the Single hand gestures. This also introduces the student to the use of facial expressions in a subtle way.
Shiro bhedas, Drishti bhedas & Greeva Bhedas: Understanding the positions of the head, eyes, and neck and their applications in Abhinaya as well as Adavus.
In addition to the practical teaching, the teacher will share the theoretical aspects of study in the form of notes with the student. The student will also be exposed to the historical and cultural theory of Bharatanatyam through interesting methods. On the completion of the course, the student would have a clear understanding of the Nritta aspect of Bharatanatyam, the alignment of the body, a sense of rhythm, and a definite sense of confidence. The student would then be in a position to decide if he or she would like to move further in their journey with this beautiful art form!
