Bharatanatyam

Course Description:
Bharatanatyam is a classical Indian dance form that denotes various 19th- and 20th-century reconstructions of Sadir, the art of temple dancers called Devadasis, and is known for its grace, purity, tenderness, and sculpturesque poses.
Bharatanatyam style is noted for its fixed upper torso, legs bent or knees flexed out combined with spectacular footwork, a sophisticated vocabulary of sign language based on gestures of hands, eyes and facial muscles. The dance is accompanied by music and a singer, and typically her guru is present as the director and conductor of the performance and art. The dance has traditionally been a form of an interpretive narration of mythical legends and spiritual ideas
About the Instructor:
Indu Mitha is one of the only two Pakistani exponents of Bharatnatyam, and also serves as a faculty member at the Rawalpindi campus of the National College of the Arts.
