Bharta Natyam is for girls and boys and is a great way for kids to exercise, develop confidence, and rhythms. It has a lot of benefits for the body and the mind.
It increases the strength of the body.
It improves flexibility, stamina and balance of the body. It helps concentration and mental focus. It increases the brain memory and bipolarity. It gives a fascinating approach to the different rhythms of the Carnatic music.
It develops drama qualities: body language, gestures, facial expressions, breathing techniques.
It gives grace and artistic sensibility and finally offers spirituality and joy for each day of life.
A dance class always starts with a yoga session to warm up and keep the body stronger and more flexible.
The student starts by learning step by step all the different Adavus (technical dance units).
Then, the student discovers the different rythms and the language of the Mudras (hand gestures).
Slowly, he/she learns some very simple and short stories, and can later enjoy beautiful technical and abhynaya (drama part of the dance) choregraphies.
Regular practice is necessary.
