Bharat Natyam Dancers


Bharat Natyam is one of the classical dance forms of Southern India. It uses a pure and clear technique. Originally performed by female temple dancers, it has been revived in modern times with male and female dancers together. The dancers pantomime stories of the gods and heroes. Their feet stamp out the rhythms. Their legs bend in a low squat, arms and hands tell the story, and their faces express the emotions of the dance.
