Service Description

The Beginner Bharatanatyam course at Lasya Dance is a comprehensive introduction to this ancient and intricate Indian classical dance form. Designed to provide students with a strong foundation, the curriculum covers both theoretical knowledge and practical skills, ensuring a holistic learning experience. The course begins with an exploration of the history and origins of Bharatanatyam, delving into its cultural significance and evolution over the centuries. Students will gain an understanding of the various elements that constitute Bharatanatyam, including its unique hand gestures (mudras), facial expressions (abhinaya), and rhythmic patterns (adavus). Practical training forms the core of the course, with a focus on mastering the basic adavus or dance steps. Students will learn to execute these steps with precision, grace, and fluidity, laying the groundwork for more complex choreographies and compositions. Emphasis is placed on correct posture, alignment, and body awareness to ensure safe and effective dance practice. In addition to adavus, students will also be introduced to basic dance sequences (alarippu, jatiswaram) and expressive pieces (shabdam) that incorporate mudras and abhinaya. These exercises help students develop their musicality, rhythm, and storytelling abilities, essential aspects of Bharatanatyam. Alongside practical training, the course includes theoretical components that deepen students' understanding of Bharatanatyam. Topics such as the theory of rasa (emotional expression), the role of music and rhythm in dance, and the significance of costume and makeup are explored, providing students with a well-rounded perspective on the art form. Throughout the course, students will have the opportunity to participate in regular assessments and feedback sessions to track their progress and identify areas for improvement. This supportive learning environment encourages students to develop self-discipline, perseverance, and a strong work ethic, qualities that are invaluable not only in dance but also in life. By the end of the Beginner Bharatanatyam course at Lasya Dance, students will have acquired a solid foundation in this beautiful and expressive art form, equipping them with the skills and knowledge to pursue further studies in Bharatanatyam or to simply enjoy dancing as a fulfilling and enriching hobby.
