Bharatnatyam dance performance

Apr 13, 2016 | Event shoot

I had the pleasure of covering a Bharatnatyam dance event by a bunch of talented kids from the Bhavam Nrityalaya as part of their annual day. These are some photos from the performance.

Bharathanatiyam is a form of Indian classical dance that originated in the temples of Tamil Nadu. It was described in the treatise Natya Shastra by Bharata around the beginning of the common era. Bharata Natyam is known for its grace, elegance, purity, tenderness, expression and sculpturesque poses. Lord Shiva in his Nataraja form is considered the God of this dance. Today, it is one of the most popular and widely performed dance styles and is practiced by male and female dancers all over the world, although it is more commonly danced by women.
