Classical dance is a beautiful art-form that acknowledges beauty and harmony. The art-form imbibes values and instils principles and discipline. The dedication and commitment required to master the art-form talks of the sustained efforts of the performer. Every dance forms nourish the mind with fresh thoughts and nurture the body with physical fitness, and Bharathanatyam is no exception.
An awesome performer gives us a breath-taking performance. Keerthana Sathyanarayanan’s Bharathanatyam dance drama was a feast to everyone’s eye. Her elegant steps and the emotions she brought about were astounding. They talked volume about Keerthana’s understanding of the art-form.
The steps of the danseuse, so charming, like the thin waves at play,
The harmonious feet, swirling to the music, not a moment to stay,
Oh Rudra, Oh Shiva! The rhythm that is sinking in the dancing feet,
Oh dancing Shakthi! Her hands and feet dancing to the musical beat.
