Bharata Natyam is a classical Indian dance form that originated in the temples of Tamil Nadu.
Bharata Natyam is known for its grace, purity, tenderness, and sculpturesque poses.
Rukmini Devi Arundale and Dr. Padma Subrahmanyam were instrumental in rejuvenating this ancient dance form into its modern form and popularized it worldwide.
Bharata Natyam is the manifestation of the ancient idea of the celebration of the eternal universe through the celebration of the beauty of the material body. Lord Shiva is considered the God of this dance form.

Guess the dancer?
“For me dancing is not just moving your arms and legs but basically it’s a very spiritual experience. It’s part of me and a second nature to me. You can say it is in my blood.” - Madhuri Dixit
