Bharatanatyam Blog

Sneha Chakradhar’s Indian classical dance blog

Bharatanatyam is an Indian classical dance form rooted in 2000 years of history. It originated in the temples of south India and was nurtured by hereditary communities of artists. It is an interpretative dance style that uses gestures and symbols to narrate stories from ancient Hindu mythology. Bharatanatyam uses intricate footwork and is known for engaging the body in creating straight lines and geometric shapes. It is a coming together of music, rhythm, yoga, biomechanics, philosophy, spirituality, mythology, poetry and literature.
