  • About the Course

    This first-level intermediate course is a continuation for those learners who started with the second-level beginner course of Bharatanatyam, taught by Veena C.S. This Bharatanatyam curriculum will continue with the students learning the different concepts and meanings of the different patterns in the dance form. The theoretical elements of the course will include a detailed study of the Nritta, Nritya, Natya from Abhinaya Darpana, Mayura, Ardhachandra, Arala, Shukhatundaka, Mushti, Shikara, Kapita, Katakamukha, Pada Bheda, Mandala Bheda and Sthanaka Bheda. The practical elements of this course will include tat tai tha ha- dhith thai tha ha-4 and Periya adavu-Tat tai tham adavu-6. Your instructor, Veena C.S, will take the students through the different stages of the learning process, and the meanings of various terms and concepts so that each student has a true understanding of the art form.

     Apart from this, the students will also continue to learn the different physical exercises required to keep up with the learning process and pace, from the basic Tattadavu to the more advanced Sarikkal Adavu. This course duration is up to 6 months and will be held for 45 mins per session but, ultimately, the progress depends on the progress and comfort of the student. Additionally, a thorough study of dance such as this second-level beginner course builds strength, confidence, and depth of expression that can enhance many areas of life. This course requires regular physical practice and weekly face-to-face sessions with the teacher.
