Dakshina Vaidyanathan presents Bharatanatyam dane program.

Dakshina Vaidyanathan.

Bharatanatyam in its traditional style. But Dakshina also do choreography, the style of which she like to call ‘neo-classical’. Traditional Bharatanatyam should definitely be preserved and performed as a part of our ancient heritage. It’s a beautiful art form. Compositions that have been passed down through generations are performed even today and it makes me feel very proud to be a part of this heritage. But at the same time, it is important for every art form to evolve with time to cater to our evolving thought process. Why should Bharatanatyam be restricted to being a monologue between the dancer and the Lord? Why should it be confined to only stories and compositions related to spirituality? Bharatanatyam is a language that has the capability to express almost anything. It is upto us, the new generation of dancers, to identify this. It is very challenging to express modern thoughts and concepts through Bharatanatyam. It’s like asking someone to explain the functioning of a laptop in Sanskrit.
