A series of workshops facilitated by experienced Bharatnatyam dancer and teacher, Monisha Bharadwaj, a practitioner of the Tanjore style of Bharata Natyam.
Bharatanatyam is a classical Indian dance form originating in the South Indian State of Tamil Nadu. This dance form denotes various 19th and 20th century reconstructions of the art of temple dancers. Bharatanatyam is usually accompanied by south Indian classical music. It has its inspirations from the sculptures of the ancient temple of Chidambaram.
Bharatanatyam, as the name depicts is the combination of:
Bha- Bhavam (means expression), Ra- Ragam (means music), Ta- Talam (means beat or rhythm) and Natyam (means dance) in Tamil.
Bharatanatyam is a traditional dance-form known for its grace, purity, tenderness, and sculpturesque poses. Today, it is one of the most popular and widely performed classical Indian dance styles and is practiced by male and female dancers all over the world.
Monisha has performed this graceful dance style for audiences as varied as Her Majesty, the Queen to school children in Zambia.
Participants will have a chance to learn a dance routine to perform at the end of the season
