Sharing a photograph I clicked during a Bharatnatyam performance.
Bharatnatyam: Bha from Bhava meaning emotion, Ra from Raaga meaning music or melody, Ta from Taala meaning rhythm and Natyam meaning dance. Thus Bharatanatyam is the dance that encompasses music, rhythm and expressional dance or Abhinaya and strictly adheres to the Natyashastra (the scripture of classical Indian dance) says @nirensmehta

It originated in the country's present day state of Keraladuring the 17th century and has developed over the years with improved looks, refined gestures and added themes besides more ornate singing and precise drumming. The themes of the Kathakali are religious in nature. They typically deal with the Mahabarat, the Ramayana and the ancient scriptures known as the Puranas. This is performed in a text which is generally Sanskritised Malayalam. 🔼For Shoutouts DM📲 or #Mykerala📝 =============================================== #travancore #malabar #kerala #ilovekerala #keralafood #namudekeralam #enthekeralam #keralablogexpress #tasteofkerala #Keralaspecial #southindia #incredibleIndia #mycitymypride #_Soi #proudlyamfromkerala #mallu #proudtobeamalayali #mountains #mothernature #green #island #backwaters #heavenonearth #houseboat #scenary #awesomekerala #godsowncountry #mytraveldiaries =============================================== @my_kozhikode @mykerala @my.kochi 👈🇫🇴🇱🇱🇴🇼

Ravi Shankar would have turned 98 years today. born Rabindra Shankar Chowdhury,his name often preceded by the title Pandit ('Master'), was an Indian musician and a composer of Hindustani classical music. He was one of the best-known proponents of the sitar in the second half of the 20th century and influenced many other musicians throughout the world. In 1999, Shankar was awarded India's highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna. Shankar was born to a Bengali family in India,and spent his youth touring India and Europe with the dance group of his brother Uday Shankar. He gave up dancing in 1938 to study sitar playing under court musician Allauddin Khan. After finishing his studies in 1944, Shankar worked as a composer, creating the music for the Apu Trilogy by Satyajit Ray, and was music director of All India Radio, New Delhi, from 1949 to 1956.
In 1956, Shankar began to tour Europe and the Americas playing Indian classical music and increased its popularity there in the 1960s through teaching, performance, and his association with violinist Yehudi Menuhin and Beatles guitarist George Harrison. His influence on the latter helped popularize the use of Indian instruments in pop music throughout the 1960s. Shankar engaged Western music by writing compositions for sitar and orchestra, and toured the world in the 1970s and 1980s. From 1986 to 1992, he served as a nominated member of Rajya Sabha, the upper chamber of the Parliament of India. He continued to perform until the end of his life. #bday #ravishankar #madeinindia🇮🇳

Yakshagana - is a traditional dance drama Indian art originated from Canara region in Karnataka . It was first mentioned in 1105. It arose in the 15th century. Yakshagana, is a form of folk art, borrowed some elements from the classical forms of drama and South Indian dance. Ancient time it is used to describe the music played at the courts of feudal lords. It is originated on the basis of traditional forms of song and dance that existed in Canara and other regions of Karnataka. Yakshagana is performed only by men not by women. One of the most interesting aspects of Yakshagana is its elaborate make-up code. The makeup of Yakshagana is very elaborate and the costumes of Yakshagana are large. The performances of Yakshagana generally depict scenes from South Indian epics and Indian epics (Ramayana and Mahabharata). It is a spectacular mix of drama , dance and music. Characters alive with painted faces and elaborate costumes tell stories from the Indian religious epics #yakshagana #mangalore

My family, love for Indian food, and my passion for Bollywood and classical Indian dance were the only things connecting me to my culture. But living in a city where I can find South Asian creatives who are constantly pushing the bar on what it means to fuse the two parts of our identities together is not only gratifying but truly inspiring.

Today I proudly wear my culture on my sleeve – literally. I strive to combine the chic and edgy aesthetic of New York City with Indian accents, whether that be traditional jewelry, intricate desi prints or the vibrant colors and embroideries we’ve come to associate with Indian fashion and culture.

Now, having one of my favorite fashion designers open a flagship store in SoHo, with a collection specially tailored for South Asians living in the diaspora only makes me feel one step closer to home. The @AnitaDongreGrassroot collection blends the comfort and ease of western-style clothing with desi prints and embroideries — all while empowering rural artisan women from traditional Indian communities.”— #BG @ashnii 👗

Ranjana and Ranjina were born 30 minutes apart, a fact that Ranjana - the ‘older one’ loves mentioning to Ranjina who brushes it off, being the more assertive and outgoing of the two. Their mother says that despite all the banter, they are joint at the hip and can’t stand being apart. When they were younger, they would always get sick and recover from their illnesses at the same time. Apart from excelling at academics, the sisters take Indian classical dance lessons and are learning Kalaripayattu – a form of martial arts that originated in Kerala.
This is Sameer Raichur taking over the Smithsonian Magazine’s feed this week. I’m currently sharing portraits from the town of Kodinhi in Kerala where an unusually high number of twin births have been documented. To see more stories from India, follow me @sameer.raichur

Intertwined with evocative dance, poetry and folk compositions, the #Thumri is a genre of Indian classical music that celebrates a light, romantic flexibility and joy, unlike structured, stricter forms like the raag or dhrupad.
Derived from the Hindi verb 'thumakna' which means 'to dance gracefully', the form is profoundly connected to dance, especially Kathak, and navigates the devotional contours of music, often revolving around a love for Lord Krishna. #Baithak #AMeetingOfMinds {Image credits: The Metropolitan Museum of Art}

It is another "story play" genre of art, but one distinguished by its elaborately colorful make-up, costumes and face masks wearing actor-dancers, who have traditionally been all males. Kathakali primarily developed as a Hindu performance art in the Malayalam speaking southwestern region of India Kerala.
Nothing too original almost every Indian artist has drawn the kathakali dancer in some version.

"Where does your @tacobell obsession come from?"
I get this question a LOT. And it's because I really love Taco Bell. My husband proposed to me with a sauce packet, and we dressed our son as a taco and us as sauce packets for Rho's first Halloween.
Hell, we even served it alongside a beautifully prepared spread from @theculinistas at my birthday party.
The answer is simple. It's because of my mother.
The @tacobell on City Line Avenue in Bala Cynwyd was just minutes away from my Bharathanatyam (classical Indian dance) class. I loved dance, but needed to be incentivized to dance my best in my lessons.
"You do well, I'll get you Taco Bell," my mom said one fall afternoon.
A love affair was quickly born.
I danced my heart out for two hours a week, just thinking about the crunch of a tostada, the sweet fizz of a cinnamon twist, and the tang of the multiple hot sauce packets I'd dump on my food.
26 years later, and I'm just as obsessed.
Thank you for being a part of so many memories, @tacobell. And thank you for ensuring I have hot sauce in my bag. Swag. #whathithawore #tacobell

The one class that is highly in demand is #bollywooddance! (Two parts to this! Slide left to see the next one! ) Viennese people are crazy about it! They ain’t interested in Bollywood dance that looks like a rip off western dance forms like hip hop n urban styles but rather, are more interested in the semi classical, Indian folk n the drama that accompanies it. That’s why I m happy to teach here at @impulstanz_festival Vienna my style of Bollywood which is the ‘ Old school Bollywood’! This has a strong influence of semi- classical n Indian folk dance moves as the western folk here want to get in touch with their feminine side cause the culture in western world celebrates masculinity ( power aggression ambition ) so many women feel uncool to show their feeling or express their femininity ! That’s why they really appreciate the feminine grace n charm of the Indian classical dance forms! Gives me also a chance to get in touch with the beauty n grace of the sacred feminine that is sometimes lost because of my contemporary training! What they love the most is when we tell them the history of Bollywood dance n how it came into being and why it looks the way it does! They get so kicked when We make them do the Nav- rasa (9 emotions) n love the Abhinaya section n the way we use our wrist( kalaiyan) while making the Hastas n body posture ( Ang bhav) ! It’s amazing to see their genuine interest to learn a culture so different from ours! Thank u @ravindertlcdc for assisting me n shooting this video! I’ve tried my best to bring out the feminine grace n charm of the dance and can’t compare it to the great Gurujis who have mastered the art form n whom I deeply respect ! This is just me trying to be an ambassador of dance n culture in a country that has little idea of the beauty of the great art we own in our culture! Have kept the Choreo simple with no western dance influences and the rhythm: slow to medium pace so that they can enjoy it without getting hassled as these are beginners to intermediate students ! They find articulating the wrist n hands super complicated n feel very shy to show their emotions so it’s a lot for them to digest in 5 days!

Says artist @ashwinibhat, “The thrill of building big, the long process, the everyday connection with the sculpture I’m coaxing into being, the human size — it’s all like interacting with another body. That excites me.” .
Honoo-no-Mori (Flame of the Forest) draws inspiration from a convergence of Asian female divinity forms: the eye idols of Tell Brak and Harappan civilization headdresses. “At the base of my sculptures, a phallic image of the Shiva lingam makes a kind of erotic rhyme with the narrow yoni, the (labial) passage above it, linking non-hierarchical male and female creativity. The passage also references the lamp-slits of old Japanese toros, or stone lanterns, honoring the particular geography where the sculpture came into being and melding all the influences into a reverential syncretic shrine.”
.
The 7ft tall, coil built sculpture was made during a residency at Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park. After 17 years in Indian classical dance, California-based Ashwini Bhat began her journey in ceramics at the Golden Bridge Pottery in Pondicherry. .
“When I’m building a sculpture almost as tall as I am, and I’m walking around it, I sometimes feel as though I’m back on stage as a dancer, intricately aware of the space and tension and mutuality between my body, the sculpture, and the environment.” For more, visit www.ashwinibhat.com

India not only varies greatly geographically but also culturally. Kathakali is an important form of classical dance that originates in the South Indian, culturally rich state of Kerela. Krishnan said, “Similar to other Indian classical dance forms, the story in ‘Kathakali’ is communicated to the audience through excellent footwork and impressive face and hand gestures that are complimented by music and vocal performance.” For more information, visit gulfnews.com.

It was very interesting working on this piece as I was able to really see the differences between Bharatanatyam and Kathak. For example, Kathak dancers have a way of communicating during their dances, breaking the fourth wall, whereas in Bharatanatyam (and Kuchipudi, for that matter) has really no such thing. ————————————————————————Choreographing my part was challenging, to say the least, but also really brought me back to my roots. Many times I’d find myself referring to the Abhinaya Darpan and practicing my adavus to reinforce my style as a Bharatanatyam dancer (because honestly, I mostly practice my Kuchipudi dances). It made me fall in love with Bharatanatyam all over again and also made me really appreciate what classical dance has to offer. Learning classical dance is an academic process that involves lots of studying. Oh also, you CANNOT just “wing it” or “improvise” with Bharatanatyam, I don’t care what anyone else says lol. ————————————————————————
Hopefully I did Bharatanatyam justice and represented this very ancient style in the best way I could. Thank you to Guru Kabita Banik for this wonderful experience 🙏🏽

Он стал популярным во всем мире благодаря тому, что ему удалось при упрощении классических танцев Индии, сохранить красоту ярких образов сложного классического танца. Здесь можно наблюдать смешения различных стилей, (многочисленные народные и племенные танцы, классические стили, боевые искусства), странами Ближнего Востока (восточный танец Bellydance, народные и классические танцы) и западным миром (хип-хоп, джаз, рок-н-рол, все возможные формы модерна, латиноамериканские танцы), и создают неповторимый “болливудский” стиль.

He became popular all over the world due to the fact that he managed to simplify classical dances of India, to preserve the beauty of bright images of complex classical dance. Here you can see the blending of different styles, (numerous folk and tribal dances, classical styles, martial arts), Middle Eastern countries (Bellydance oriental dance, folk and classical dances) and Western world (hip-hop, jazz, rock-n-roll, all possible forms of Art Nouveau, Latin American dances), and create a unique "Bollywood" style.

Kathakali is one of the major forms of classical Indian dance. It is a "story play" genre of art, but one distinguished by the elaborately colorful make-up, costumes and facemasks that the traditionally male actor-dancers wear. Kathakali primarily developed as a Hindu performance art in the Malayalam-speaking southwestern region of India (Kerala). Katakali is similar to Mohiliattam
Kathakali's roots are unclear. The fully developed style of Kathakali originated around the 17th century, but its roots are in the temple and folk arts (such as Kutiyattam and religious drama of the southwestern Indian peninsula), which are traceable to at least the 1st millennium CE. A Kathakali performance, like all classical dance arts of India, synthesizes music, vocal performers, choreography and hand and facial gestures together to express ideas. However, Kathakali differs in that it also incorporates movements from ancient Indian martial arts and athletic traditions of South India. Kathakali also differs in that the structure and details of its art form developed in the courts and theatres of Hindu principalities, unlike other classical Indian dances which primarily developed in Hindu temples and monastic schools.

It made me emotional because pushing Modern Indian Classical to be recognized, appreciated and put on the map has been such a big goal. It's what I continue to work towards even though it gives room for people to see it as a disgrace to traditional Indian Classical dance. Each for their own but I am all about breaking barriers, exploring, reinventing & creating what I want to create. It's who I am so thank you for standing by me💛 .

Though they are bashful about their relationship, their body language gives them away - they are in constant contact with each other when they are not already holding hands. Having grown up with a lot of other twin friends, they say they don’t feel there is anything special or unique about having a twin. They love spending time at their grandparents’ house and having their friends come over to play. They love to dance and are currently undergoing training in Bharatnatyam – an Indian classical dance form.
Kodinhi is a village in the southern Indian state of Kerala with an unusually high number of twins (over 400 pairs in a town with approximately 2000 families) The ‘twinning’ phenomenon was hiding in plain sight and actually came to the fore after a census conducted by by 13 year old twins Sameera and Femeena as part of a high school class project. After it’s ‘discovery’ in 2006, Kodinhi was catapulted into the international imagination. It was swarmed by the media, scientists, researchers and curious visitors, temporarily turning the town into a menagerie.

The scene is filled with excited #teachers, zealous #family members and a couple skittish students in the #entourage, helping with the make-up, the #dressing, the #ornaments and the #jewelry.. In between all the scurry, I do like how these performers stay calm and focused, taking on the biggest evening of their learning years. .

Backstage details at the University of Maryland's premier Indian Classical Dance competition, UMD Mayuri (@umdmayuri). As a trained Bharatanatyam dancer and choreographer myself, it's always a true privilege to photograph shows that are brimming with brilliant choreography, direction, lighting, stories, and precision. I loved that many teams presented real world stories depicting difficult topics like mental health, religious conflicts, honor killings and the refugee crisis, all through the unifying medium of dance. I'm reliving each piece - and all the emotions I felt during them - as I'm editing all the photos, and I can't wait to share them soon!!

Another great example of the cross over between both present day movement culture and yogasana practice is the Horse Stance - which I believe originated in Chinese martial arts? If anyone has knowledge of the origins of it I would appreciate knowing.
My first introduction to it was as a student of @simonsynergy in 2000 where he would incorporate it (though he called it Elephant Stance) into the Prasarita Padottonasana sequence - . As a new student of Yoga at the time I never thought to ask him if he came up with the idea or borrowed it from another teacher. I know Shandor Remete was already incorporating martial arts and Indian classical dance movements into his Shadow Yoga method, and later Shiva Rea was possibly the main influencer of the the current yoga world bringing her studies of the Indian martial art - Kalaripayattu into her asana sequences and refashioning this pose to her female students as the “Goddess Pose” - unless that was already a name? Does anyone know the origins of this?
In my current training with Ido Portal the Horse Stance is a part of the daily practice and I imagine it is used commonly amongst others teachers in the movement community.
In these videos I’m using the same approximation of the @simonsynergy sequence of combining the stance with 4 primary spinal movements - flexion, extension, side flexion and rotation, as well as shoulder and scapular movement variations. I also start with a passive stretch followed by PNF (pressing my hands and knees against each other) followed by active stretching- pulling the knees away from the hands using the glutes.
I finish the sequence with a handstand press and an one arm handstand for good measure in the spirit of evolution 🤙🏼.

KNOW YOUR ART SHOW - PATTACHITRA OF ODISHA
In ‘The Dancing Line’ artist Bijay Parida explores popular themes found in pattachitras - the many seasons (Shada Ritu) or avatars of Jagannath, the Dasavatra (ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu), various episodes from the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, and more. The patta paintings of Parida also turn to Oriya poetry particularly the Gita Govinda, a body of work composed by the 12th-century Indian poet, Jayadeva, a central figure in Odia culture. Gita Govinda explores the relationship between Krishna and the gopis (female cow herders) of Vrindavan; the text is also integral to the Indian classical dance form, Odissi.

EXTENDED TILL: SATURDAY 15TH APRIL!
The Dancing Line : Pattachitra from Odisha
The Krishna Lila of Bijay Parida
Timings: 11am to 7pm
