Bharatanatyam; Basics Of Dance Adavu 01:

The history of Bharatanatyam is crucial to start-off with the dance form. This dance form is essentially temple dance, and devadasis are still carrying the legacy forward. The dance is a combination of bhaava, raaga and taala, and natyam means dance, therefore Bharatanatyam. The section serves as a brilliant start as it provides a brief history followed by the introduction of the functional step i.e. Bhoomi-Pranam i.e. salutation to Mother Earth. It also throws light on the basic steps of Bharatanatyam: adavus i.e. steps in the dance form, arthamandali or araimandali i.e. half-sitting. The emphasis should be on the right posture because it maintains the beauty of the dance.
