Introduction to Bharathanatyam Less

By learning body postures, rhythmic footwork patterns and hand gestures of this traditional athletic South Indian dance form, students are able to dramatize stories in a new way, both individually and as a group. Subashini Ganesan, founder of Natya Leela Academy, has been studying the form since she was 4 ½ years old and provides students with tools to challenge themselves physically, emotionally and intellectually. She teaches students about the Hindu gods and goddesses who are main characters in many of the dance stories. This residency can culminate in a student performance of dance routines they have learned or choreographed using the traditional elements. By the end of their time with Suba, students will have had many opportunities to discover their inner voices, increase body strength and develop self-discipline.
