This course will first educate the students on theoretical knowledge about the ancient classical dance form of Kerala, Mohiniyattam, or the dance of the enchantress. It will introduce to students step by step the different aduvas or foot movements involved alongside the different hand gestures. In total, the students will learn about 80 adavus or steps besides 24 hand gestures or mudras. Students will also get trained on depicting 6 different characters, ranging from an animal like the elephant, insects such as the bee, or a mythological character in the form of God or others. The culmination of the course will ensure the students are in good stead to perform a 10-minute performance showcasing their skills in Mohiniyattam.
If the student wants to learn more insights on the Basic's of Mohiniyattam like basic adavus, steps, or foot movements, alongside mudras or hand gestures, here is another course tailored by Dr. Rekha Raju: Basics of Mohiniyattam
About the Instructor: Identified as a child prodigy after entering dance school at the tender age of 3 and a half years, Rekha Raju has come a long way. After refining her skills as a Bharatanatyam dancer Dr. Rekha Raju has devoted most of her time to Mohiniyattam, a dance form popular in Kerala. Perhaps her birth in Palakkad, Kerala could be the possible reason for her interest in Mohiniyattam. Raised in Bangalore, the gifted artist now runs a dance school in Bangalore. Amidst this hustle and bustle, Dr.Rekha Raju successfully completed her Ph.D. in dance from Mysore University studying Margi and desi techniques of Bharatanatyam and Mohiniyattam.
Her apprentice and assistant faculty trainer, Keerthi Uday is currently pursuing her higher studies at Mount Carmel College (Bangalore, India). She has been learning Bharatanatyam, since she was six, under the guidance of Dr. Rekha Raju. She has also completed her Prarambhik, Praveshik Purna exams in Bharatanatyam from Bhartiya Sangeeth Prasarak Mandal (Pune), with flying colors. Keerthi is also learning the dance forms Mohiniyatam under Dr. Rekha Raju, Thalam, and Nattuvangam under Sri. Jagdeesh Janardhanan. She is one of the faculty members of Dr. Rekha Raju’s troupe and has assisted her in several workshops and major dance festivals.
Students undergoing the intermediate training in Mohiniyattam under the able guidance of Dr. Rekha Raju can be sure to have a strong foundation in the ancient classical dance form. It will not just help them further their prowess in Mohiniyattam, but students interested to learn Bharatnatyam can very well pick up the other South Indian dance form with ease, for the similarity Mohiniyattam and Bharatanatyam share.
Students enrolling for this long term course on ipassio can be sure that they receive individual attention from the teacher, as the class strength is limited to 2 students. It also gives teachers the opportunity, to gauge their students progress in depth and make changes whenever and wherever required, to ensure the student gets the maximum out of this course. Since, long term courses are detailed, students get the advantage of learning intricate details about this art form. The limited strength of the class also ensures that there is a strong bond between the students and their teacher clearing out any inhibitions that the student might have. Learning from a revered, experienced exponent of this art form, through the long duration of this course, keeps the student inspired and motivated to achieve more.
Students attending this course should be dedicated to learn the artform.They should have:
A notebook and pen handy to take down notes during their classes.
