Dance with Love: workshop by Lakshmi & Sunil

This is one of the workshop children enjoyed most. Lakshmi explained and demonstrated the forms of dance, Bharatanatyam and Kathakali with special reference to the similarity and differences between them.

They reiterated that the classical dance forms of India are not merely a movement of the body, but involves the dancer’s being one with God.

Depicted the navarasas in both the dance forms, Kathakali and Bharatanatyam.

Involved the participants of Gitamrita in both the dance forms, taught them lessons, and make of Kathakali.

Lakshmi stressed the importance of the dancer experiencing love in God.
