APPROACH & METHODOLOGY

Our training includes the study of these aspects from Abhinaya Darpana, Sangeeta Ratnakara, Nartana Nirnaya and Natya Shastra.

Nritta - "Nrittam taal laya aashrayam" - Dhananjay

Nritta is the demonstration of rhythm through graceful body movements. Beat and tempo are its two vital constituents. The synchronization between rhythm and time is of utmost importance in a Nritta piece. Its purpose is to showcase geometric patterns and complex rhythmic variations.

Nritya - "RasaBhaavavyanjanaadiyuktam
Nrittamitiryatae etanrityam mahaarajasabhayaam" - Nandikeshwara

Nritya is the explanatory aspect, where the illustration of poetry is through graceful and designed movements. Nritya is where the dancer justifies the meaning of the song, through facial expressions (abhinaya), hand (mudras) and legs movements (charis).

Natya - "Naatyamtannaatakam cha va Pujyam purva kathayutham" - Nandikeshwara

Natya is the dramatic element of classical Indian dance. Natya is effectively used when performing the great Indian, Hindu epics like the Ramayana, and the Mahabharata. The dancers take on the roles of characters and perform a dramatic story through music and dance. Natya is achieving a story through speech, music, Nritta and Nritya.
