Indian Classical Dance Form

Bharatanatyam is one of the oldest classical dance forms that originated in southern India. Initially practiced as an offering in temples, Bharatanatyam today has adapted and evolved to be one of the most prevalent performing arts.

Interlaced with melody and rhythm, this art form is a unique way of expressing oneself through movement. Practicing Bharatanatyam brings a sense of awareness of your body, mind and emotions, helping improve your balance and stability.
