Bharatnatyam is regarded as “a dance of fire” – the mystical manifestation of the metaphysical element of fire in the human body. It is a highly demanding dance, whose precise frameworks and metrics organize the volutes of a summoned body in all its splendour: no cell escapes the grace set in motion. This dance, once considered sacred, has come out of the temples and onto our stages. It is also intimately associated with Indian classical music and its rhythms.
