Course Summary

The elegant and mesmerising dance form Bharatanatyam equips its performer with the ability to communicate with the audience through gestures and expressions. Are you too inspired by the art form and wish to take your Bharathanatyam journey to the next level? These classes designed by Parijat Naik are an extension of her beginner-level courses. The curriculum covers three major categories - Nritta (pure dance), Natya (Abhinaya or expression), and Nritya (a combination of both). In this intermediate-level course, the students will further work on the Nritta aspect of dance and learn the Natya aspect.
