Bharatha Nattyam


Bharatanatyam is a classical indian dance form originating in Tamil Nadu, India, created by sage Bharat Muni, who wrote the Natyashstra. Natya is dance, drama and music. The fanciful derivation of the name is Bha (meaninig Bahava or emotions), Ra (meaninig raga or melody) and Ta (meaning tall or rhythem). Bharatanatyam cogregates vigor and grace, balance and suppleness, endurance and rhythem, symmetry and precision-all in one eye pleasing performance.
