Bharatanatyam is a major form of Indian classical dance with a history that goes back more than two thousand years. It is known for its grace, purity, tenderness and sculpturesque poses. Today, it is one of the most popular and widely performed dance styles.
Our teachers are professional classical dancers and have performed in various stages in Michigan. With more than fifteen years of classical dancing experience, they are here to promote the dance form to the younger kids and make them the best.
Every class will begin with some warm-up exercises, then continue with prayer, namaskaram. Students will learn several fundamental footsteps (adavus), eye, neck movements, and hand gestures (hasta mudras). After they are strong in the basics, they will continue to learn the various steps to perform for a song like Alarippu, Pushpanjali, Kauthuvam and on Bollywood songs semi-classical dance performances
