Indian Dance Classes in Chantilly, VA

Bharatanatyam - Kalakshetra

Bharatanatyam is one of the oldest classical dance heritage of India, originating in Hindu temples of Tamil Nadu, dating back to the 16th or 17th century during the Devdasi culture. 

The dance form was derived by joining two words, ‘Bharata’ and Natyam’ where ‘Natyam in Sanskrit means dance and ‘Bharata’ is a mnemonic comprising ‘bha’, ‘ra’ and ‘ta’ which respectively means ‘bhava’ that is emotion and feelings; ‘raga’ that is melody; and ‘tala’ that is rhythm. Theoretical base of this form traces back to ‘Natya Shastra’, the ancient Sanskrit Hindu text on the performing arts.

At 'Saanwee' we offer Bharatnatyam classes for kids and adults starting at 4.5yrs of age. This dance is more than just a weekly class and requires years of Abhyaas and Sadhana.
